Positive Steps Kemnay

Record Number: 6491







Positive Steps provide short low level walks around Kemnay which are designed for all abilities, even those who have not exercised for a while. The walks are lead by trained, volunteer Health Walk leaders.

Walks take place every Friday, meeting outside Kemnay Village Hall, 8 Aquithie Road, Kemay, AB51 5SS at 9.30am. Walks are 45 minutes to an hour with coffee and chat in the Village Hall afterwards.

At the same time there is also a Gentle Walk for approx 30 minutes or according to walkers ability on the day.

Periodically the group arranges a Strength and Balance Group that introduces a series of 10 simple exercises that help keep people strong and balanced therefore reducing the risk of trips and falls. This is followed by a gentle walk and a coffee and chat.

A health walk is a purposeful walk undertaken on a regular basis to improve health.

A health walk:

  • is led by a trained volunteer (and the route has been risk assessed)
  • is less than an hour long
  • has a short warm up at the start, followed by a brisk walk and then a short cool down at the end
  • welcomes new walkers who would benefit from being more active

Health walks are targeted at inactive people who would benefit most from doing more physical activity, such as older people or those with long term conditions.
