Emma has an art and design background, originally training as a textile designer. Having worked in the greeting card industry for over 20 years, Emma’s long standing passion for the outdoors has finally tempted her away from her desk and out into the countryside.
An enthusiastic ‘holiday walker’, around the stunning landscape of the South West, Emma was introduced to Nordic Walking several years ago by her inspirational personal trainer, Karen Lem of local WALX Ridgeway.
Emma soon realised the importance and substantial health benefits that Nordic Walking can offer to all ages and abilities. Training, initially as a walk leader, before progressing to instructor, Emma’s aim is to motivate and encourage everyone to live a happy, healthy and active life, recognising the importance of green space interaction in our daily lives.
Wanting to share this enthusiasm, Emma’s walks are designed to challenge and inspire the body and mind and always with a SMILE!
After 20 years in co-orporate business Karen decided to follow her passion – Fitness and Wellbeing.
Since 2006 Karen has become an accomplished Personal trainer, Pilates instructor, Nordic Walking Instructor as well as WALX Master, aiming to inspire and motivate anyone wanting to feel good about themselves, their health and their body. Karen has an enthusiastic and infectious approach suitable for all age groups and all goals. Her real passion is to be outdoors, so Nordic Walking is an essential part of both her business and personal stay healthy regime.
Karen also delivers our ONLINE Pilates and Stretch classes via Zoom.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Nordic Walking because it is so me. It combines my passion for the beautiful English countryside and need for fresh air with my enthusiasm for exercise and fitness. It not only gives me a fantastic all over body workout but is great for my soul and mental well-being too.
I can honestly say Nordic Walking has transformed my life since I retired from nursing. It has given me a sense of purpose and a fabulous new hobby. Who would have thought that in my 60th year, I would train to become a Nordic Walking Instructor but I feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to enable others to learn the technique and take up this amazing activity.
Most important of all, Nordic Walking has introduced me to a bunch of like-minded people and I have made some fabulous new friends. I love to hear everyone chatting whilst enjoying the surrounding scenery in the constantly changing seasons. I also enjoy a challenge (I climbed Kilimanjaro a few years ago) and love taking part in challenge events with the supportive bunch of people that are Nordic Walkers.
Role: Walk Leader
I was a keen and regular runner for the last 15 years. In January 2018 my running career came to a sudden halt due to osteoarthritis in my hip and I felt totally lost no longer being actively involved in any outdoor activities.
After some searching on the internet I came across Milton Keynes Nordic Walking. I completed my ‘Learn to Nordic Walk’ course in October 2018 and have not looked back since! I am passionate about Nordic Walking as it has given me a new lease of life and am so happy that I am able to do workouts without pain, knowing that I do not damage my hip any further.
When Emma asked if I would consider becoming a ‘Walk Leader’ I had to say YES! We can now add extra walks to our MK schedules and introduce more people to Nordic Walking in Milton Keynes.
Not only has Nordic Walking given me opportunities to discover the beautiful surroundings of Milton Keynes and beyond, but I have also met fantastic, like-minded people who appreciate the countryside and love being outside while getting and keeping fit.
