From the first day I felt part of the family

I always loved the outdoors and Tramping – it is what we Kiwis call hiking. Somehow though, my life seemed to revolve around work. Life was pretty mundane and I felt that I did not have a lot of purpose. I have always put other people in my life first and I thought it was now time to put me first.  I wanted to become more active and meet new like minded people. When Women’s Fitness Adventures popped up on my Facebook feed. I kept looking at the group and was unsure whether to join. I made some enquiries and asked if they didn’t mind a Kiwi joining! Their response was very welcoming and from the first day I arrived at HikeAbout I have felt like part of the family. Sandy's story of belonging with Women's Fitness Adventures I have been involved in so many adventures since I joined. My biggest success was completing the Kokoda Track.  This would not have been possible without the support and encouragement from Women’s Fitness Adventures and the other C.R.E.W members. My advice to other women who might think work has taken over, or they want to get active again is to Just do it! I made the best decision. Everyone makes you feel welcome and important, no matter where you are from or what stage of fitness you are at. Just join, you will never ever regret joining this group.  I now have a purpose to keep my fitness up and look forward to planning my next adventures. Sandy has been an active member since September 2017 and has completed many adventures in that time.
