Ageless and athletic
People who don’t let hurdles hold them back
Through determination and resilience, people are overcoming hurdles such as fitness, age and illness. By taking up sport they are discovering that age is no reason not to achieve. These stories come from people very close to us at Nirvana Spa.
This season he has pushed himself even further completing the River Dart 10K and the Scilly Swim Challenge, swimming from island to island! He has just finished the season with his first ever night swim – a little scary, he says, but great fun.
Sean’s determination to recover from his back troubles has led to great improvements in his overall fitness and strength. He has even been able to start running again and was delighted to complete the Blenheim Palace Triathlon earlier this year.
“Never give up even if you think your sporting endeavours are finished. There’s always something that you can take part in whatever the physical limitations. The swim jets at Nirvana have given me a new lease of life and I can’t wait to plan next year’s events. I hear the Barbados swim festival is quite good fun!”
