Livin' Large was started to empower those of us who want to walk, want to move - want to get started on changing our bodies, but need a slower pace. Vancouver Island is home to some of the most breath-taking scenery and hosts a plethora of walking trails, and urban routes - many of which are perfectly suited to beginners.  We'll walk in many different places, around lakes, along sidewalks, over bridges and down paths of gravel, dirt, pavement and sand.

Who am I? I'm someone who is overweight, yes, but my goal is not weight loss. My goal is to become stronger and feel better by walking at MY pace. Walking groups are wonderful, but they can't always address the issues specific to people of size or with a lower fitness level. This group has no judgement and no requirements other than a desire to get moving, a need to start out slowly, a positive attitude and a firm understanding that walking IS exercise. So please talk to your doctor first to make sure this is the right place for you.  If you feel that this group is a good fit, then we're excited to have you here! We'll meet up every week to walk a trail suited to our needs - that means mostly flat, with places to rest along the way.  We'll decide as a group if we want to walk together more often and hopefully we'll be inspired by the beauty around us and each other!  We might even get out of town now and again and see what else this island has to offer!

This is a rain or shine group! Come be supported by like-minded people as you seek to make a positive change. Everyone is welcome!
