What a great evening out! The Forest Park Hotel in Brockenhurst did us proud for our Xmas Dinner again this year! They’ve decorated the hotel beautifully and the food and service were both fantastic! With fresh air coming through the room and the staff making things as safe as possible, everyone was happy to relax […]
A little mid morning break on our Saturday walks to enjoy hot chocolate (with Baileys!) and mince pies!!! Well it is Christmas!!!!
What beautiful weather for our Adventure Walk on Friday! The walk set off onto the beautiful Rockford Common with its stunning views, onto the Avon Valley Path which leads to Ibsley Common, with its lovely views of Blashford Lake, then up to an area steeped in military history including the Huff Duff (an old directional […]
It was great to get out before breakfast every morning on our recent trip to Costa Adeje in Tenerife! It’s a popular time for exercise along the promenade and I was interested to see so many Nordic walkers out! Of course there were all sorts of styles – mainly people swinging from the elbow instead […]
Suzanne moved to the New Forest with husband Trevor in 2010 and is passionate about the area with all its beautiful walks. Once she discovered the benefits of Nordic Walking, she trained to become an instructor and has established a very successful and social club where people can come along and share her passion.
She is also trained to deliver MSE (Muscle Strength and Endurance) exercise programmes which are often added at the end of a workout walk.
One of Suzanne’s biggest loves is dogs and the club enjoys the company of several of our four legged friends who add to the enjoyment of the walks!
Other hobbies include ski-ing, water ski-ing, keeping fit, dancing and eating and drinking!
Trevor qualified as a NWUK Instructor in 2014 and loves nothing better than helping people get the most from Nordic Walking. His in depth research of the benefits of correct Nordic Walking technique have helped him to help our members get the most out of this fantastic activity.
He is also trained as an Isometric Instructor and is able to offer training in this highly efficient muscle building technique.
From his many years as a business coach, Trevor has great empathy with people from all backgrounds and ages.
Sue Gravells is a part-time fully accredited Nordic Walking UK instructor delivering walks in the New Forest East area, mostly around Ashurst, Colbury, Beaulieu and Lyndhurst. Sue joined us through lockdown as she adapted to her new working lifestyle at home and is a welcome addition to the team, particularly with her enthusiasm for supporting others to increase their fitness and her love of the Forest. Sue has lived with her husband in Ashurst for over twenty years and as a mountain bike enthusiast, as well as a professional personal development coach who walks with her coaching clients, she knows her way around the trails – and the cafes!

Having just retired I wanted to get fit after a life time of sitting down before it was too late. Nordic walking has given me that chance. It is fun, not too difficult and after only a few months I feel much fitter and am losing weight.
Apart from the social side of regularly meeting up with friends, the wonderful New Forest area, the great upper body exercise, I have to say the biggest gain is posture. So thank you Nordic Walking.
Nordic walking has done wonders for my fitness and stamina - developed muscles I didn't know I had ! I've even dropped a belt size!
I have been nordic walking for 7 months and I am amazed what a difference it has made to my posture and fitness level. I had an old shoulder injury and was nervous that it might be aggravated by using the poles. In fact it has helped to give me more movement in the shoulder. A bonus I didn't expect! It is great walking over the forest and the adventure walks are great fun".
I just love Nordic walking. You can do it at your own pace and with lots of different people so it’s fun, social and at whatever exercise level fits for you. What’s not to like?And Suzanne takes her teaching seriously, so you’ll get good training, plus advice, hints, tips and help to order poles and wrist bands.
She also organises a series of walks, at different levels and at different places each week, so what you chose to do is up to you. There is lots of choice, so a perfect way to build mobility, keep fit, get fitter and have a lot of fun at the same time!
But if you’d asked me about Nordic Walking a year ago I’d have just laughed about people with poles – no longer – totally converted.’
