Countryside Heroes: Go with the Flo
Every Monday night at 6.00 pm, Flo Dowler stands on top of a large green building container just outside her parents’ house and invites the whole street to join in a workout on their doorsteps.
All ages and all fitness levels join in and dumb bells are replaced with cans of food and all monies raised go to the National Emergencies Coronavirus Appeal.
Flo has been a personal trainer for just over a year now, working at a private members club. As someone who believes in focussing on exercise as a tool for feeling good and functioning well, she tried to come up with ways in which she could give her time back to help people in these strange times. She decided to try and get her street moving! She thought that she could help people with their physical and mental health and raise money for a critical cause at the same time.
Great job Flo – keep on working out! Wish we lived on your street!
