Hi there! My name’s Ash, and I’m a local doctor on a mission to improve the health and happiness of our community through physical activity. You might know me by my moniker, Doctor Do More!
You might have seen me pounding the pavement in September for the #MoveAgainstCancer step challenge, an initiative I started to get Coasties moving more.
Another way I’m promoting physical activity is through a free and local directory of movement-based businesses on the Central Coast. Think of it like a Google for local exercise!
Let me introduce you to the Do More Movement Directory.
What is the Do More Movement Directory?
It’s a website that aims to showcase the wealth of physical activity in our community, with an easy search function for people who want to find a new way to move. I believe that there’s an activity out there to suit everyone, and am excited to play exercise match-maker!
This initiative is truly a passion project for me – as an emergency doctor, I’ve seen how valuable physical and mental health is. And through the Do More Movement Directory, I’ve connected with hundreds of local business owners who see first-hand the impact their exercise has on clients, whether it be a walking group, yoga studio, CrossFit gym, surf school or pole dancing studio!
I want to inspire people to Do More and help build a community of active bodies on the Central Coast.
“Increasing the amount of physical activity can help you achieve a greater level of health and happiness. Exercise doesn’t have to be scary, it doesn’t have to be intense, and you don’t have to be an athlete to join in. It’s about moving your body with the intention of getting healthier. Along the way you might find something new and exciting, or even meet some incredible people.”Dr Ash Bowden, Doctor Do More
So, you’re ready to Do More!
Are you looking to move more, but unsure what you enjoy? Use the Do More Movement Directory like an activity search engine, and filter the huge choice of movement here on the Central Coast specifically tailored to your interests.
If you’re just starting out you might select “Beginners”, “In a class” and maybe a single gender activity. Maybe you’ve recently moved to the Central Coast and want to find your new local gym, or perhaps you’re pregnant and need something you know is bump-safe. You just need to tick the filters that suit your needs, check out the provider reviews and get in contact to arrange a trial visit.
Play around to see some of the activity that’s near you, we guarantee you’ll be surprised by how much is on offer!
If you’re truly stuck for how to Do More, send me an email and I’ll find some providers that’ll suit you.
