Let's make it happen. Whatever your personal barrier, we'll give you all the advice and encouragement you need to begin your Outward Bound adventure.
I was initially nervous to ask my boss for time off to go to Outward Bound. But he supported me and saw the value of it both for me and the organisation. Those 21 days were an investment, which I know will pay off personally and professionally.
As a full time mum, leaving my son for the first time was a huge step. But with the support of my amazing family network, I was able to accept the Outward Bound challenge. I believe that taking the time out from my family commitments to invest in myself was one of the best decisions I ever made.
A year or so before Outward Bound, I had undergone hip surgery. I also had to lose some weight in preparation the course. When it got tough, I just kept in mind the reason I had applied - to push myself. No matter your starting point, you can improve your health and fitness to get to Outward Bound.
Do everything you can to get to Outward Bound - keep looking for new ideas to raise money and never ever give up! I guarantee you will come back a new person.
