Developing your growth through wellbeing activities.


In 2014, my, soon to be Husband got diagnosed with terminal cancer and he later died in December 2018. It was a long fight on his behalf and a lot of caring on mine. During that period, I believed I was coping very well, and I was prepared for the end. I was wrong! After his death I was very isolated, no one knew what to say or do, depression was setting in and I was going for walks on my own, which left me very paranoid. I soon became aware that the 4 years of caring had taken its toll on me physically and emotionally. Then the country was hit by COVID, working remotely I soon realised, that I wanted to make a difference to people’s lives after working in Further Education for 20+ years by setting up Root Training and providing group and 1-1 walks, to support the mental health and wellbeing for those that have a long term health condition, feel isolated or need a safe outdoor space with a low impact walk to improve their fitness.

"I did my first walk today and I must confess I was somewhat circumspect before and after all I do a reasonable amount of walking myself but it was beyond all expectation and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.


The pace was great and it was a lovely walk. Tracey was positive and engaging but not OTT so as to be tiresome and was very pleasant company .


It exceeded my expectations and I found it a great experience.

I hope others will try it as it really helped me. Thank you. "

At the age of 54 I completed my first Park Run today!!

8 weeks ago I was definitely more couch potato than 5k; a post menopausal women feeling unfit, overweight and lacking confidence. With the help and support of Tracey and Trevor at Root Training I have accomplished more than I could ever imagine.

The support of my fellow group members has been so encouraging too.

I would recommend the course to anyone. Give it a go, I did and now look forward to going for a run

After 8 weeks I could believe, how better I feel.

My mental health improved a lot.

My mobility ... my breathing.

I really recommend

The mentors are great, very supportive, giving us lots of incentives, and good listeners if we need to talk.

After each time, when I finish my training, all my stress disappear.

I release me fears, and my mind became clear.

I became 'addicted '

The feeling is so good ...that no matter how much I write, I'll never be able to say how this has helped me, physically and mentally.

I only can say THANK YOU Tracey and Trevor.
