What a great week we had in Mijas! The weather couldn’t have been better and we had some great walks, thanks to our guides Juan and William. They were very impressed with our fitness level ! Apparently we got up those hills (and they were steep!) in half the time of any other clients they’d
A great day out on the IOW! We were lucky enough to have the perfect weather – warm but not too hot and a brilliant breeze! We started our adventure at Lymington and had a late breakfast on the ferry over to Yarmouth. The walk took us along the old railway to Freshwater Bay – […]
We had a great, 9 mile walk on Tuesday along the coastline from Chewton Bunny to Mudeford Quay then got the little ferry over the Hengistbury Head where we had a lovely walk and coffee stop at the top of the hill with views! We were grateful for part cloud cover to keep the temperature […]
A good time was had by all on our recent trip to Chamonix! Weather was variable – ranging from hot and sunny to an arctic storm! The Nordic ski-ing was challenging in difficult conditions and everyone did brilliantly – some had never been on skis before, so a real achievement! Our instructor, Julia, was absolutely […]
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 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!

I can vouch for this wonderful group and brilliant and lovely instructor Suzanne. Started on a taster on Jan 6th 2024 and have not looked back. Love the walks. Really friendly people and have already got fitter and feel overall healthier and happier. What better place to walk than the beautiful New Forest. Give it a go you will not regret it I promise.
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.’
