Debbie Baxter

My journey with Nordic walking began with a taster session at a fitness weekend. It was an outdoor activity which was fun and sociable.
Nordic walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking. Anyone can do it. It is twice as effective using 90% of our muscles and burns more calories.
I decided to become a nordic Walking Instructor after having recieved a serious leg and hip injury. With Nordic walking I got my confidence back and was able to set goals,challenge myself and improve my personal fitness.

I am a qualified wellbeing and performance coach and understand difficulties and managing life’s stresses . With my varied job experiences in the public sector and bringing up my own family I enjoy helping others and recognise the importance of keeping fit.

I have always kept myself fit, spending 22 years in the military gave me a love of the outdoors. I can’t think of anything better than Nordic Walking with a group of people who have the same love of the outdoors.

Hi I am Storme, I have lived in beautiful Bath for 18 years and have over 20 different small group Nordic Walking routes in and around Bath, we walk all over the Bath area, Bath Centre, Bathwick Hill and around Widcombe, Sham Castle, Rainbow Woods, Lansdowne Racecourse.  I absolutely love introducing people to Nordic Walking and teaching the technique as it is fun, super easy to learn and gives instant results.  I provide poles for the Learn To Nordic Walk.  It’s great Fitness, helps you stay aligned and balanced and turns your walk into a workout depending on the level of course.
After you have learned the technique you are then in a position to get your own set of Poles or for your first few group walks you may prefer to borrow mine and try the different types of Poles available and choose which type suits you best before buying your own.  Are you gloves/no gloves?  Carbon/Aluminium?
The walks are graded, easy moderate and challenging.  The gradient is also outlined whether a flat walk, moderately hilly or once again challenging.  All walks of course have COVID protocols in place and are fully risk assessed.
