Do you drive? If you have a car, chances are you're pretty reliant on it. How does this sound; ditch the car for a day and discover the surprising benefits of cycling and walking.
22nd September is World Carfree Day, a global event promoting the prospect of a car-free life. All over the world, events showcase what our towns, cities and rural areas might look like if we were to live, work, shop and commute without our cars. Of course, going totally car-free is neither probable nor practical. But World Carfree Day definitely gives us a few things to think about.
As someone who's passionate about health and wellness, you probably already walk (or cycle) more than the average person. Why not try walking or cycling to work? What starts out as a one-day challenge could turn into a summer routine, or even a year-round change of habits.
Even if you can't ditch the motor for good, we'd encourage you to consider reducing the amount of miles you put in. This is particularly relevant for shorter, local journeys. There are so many benefits to reducing our reliance on cars:
Hands up who's going to walk or cycle to work for World Carfree Day on 22nd September? It could be the start of a healthy new lifestyle change.

I found my experience friendly and helpful and easy to understand
Everyone who contacted me or I was in contact with was very friendly, helpful and informative. Very professional yet easy going.
Excellent service and help provided throughout, thanks a lot! Andy McGlashan (tutor) replied 99% of the time within a couple of hours to any questions and when providing feedback to me, top guy couldn't ask for more
The course was really helpful and it gave me the skills I need to become a Personal Trainer, I have now started work at Pure Gym in Warrington.
All of the admin staff were incredibly helpful and instrumental in my attendance and attainment of the course, and my tutor Tracey Lilburn at the Newcastle school was overwhelming supportive and absolutely the reason for my success.
I get very quickly answers to my questions.
Fast track course so it's intense but head down listen and you will be a happy pt
Course was really good
Very impressed with Jenna Coyle the tutor. Awesome tutor thanks
Would never of passed with out Jenna.
I thought the process was done very smoothly and professionally. I would say this is because of the training room staff being very quick and dedicated to their job and problem solving problems very efficiently.
