    Energize Blog: Today I ran to work… (Energize your Workplace) In my last blog I focused on a big first – my first big running target the Inflatable 5k and that was a blast! (see picture attached below) Not much running – mostly pushing each other over, acting like kids and generally having a great time bouncing on bouncy castles! […]

    In September 2016 I made a decision that would ultimately turn me into what my couch to 5k online coach would call “A RUNNER”.  This blog will hopefully help you understand the trials and tribulations of becoming a beginner runner, for someone who had nightmares about school cross country, or having to run after a bus…  Needless to say I’m […]

As 15 minutes of fame go, mine was a little innocuous in that I had to compel family and friends to listen to my interview on the Jim Hawkins show on Radio Shropshire, but who knows maybe the message was heard by one or two people […]

    Blog February 2017 – This Girl Can: keep calm and spin! Written by Clare, Shropshire resident who found a love for spinning. I’m too tired. I can’t find my trainers.

    Has anybody responded to the Shropshire Council draft Sport & Leisure Facility Strategy?  At Energize we have had a look at it and we thought we would share some of the main headlines – especially given that the report is 125 pages long with large amounts of data and impenetrable language.  Even we were baffled by some of it!!
