Getting fit with poles! Nordic Walking lifts the spirits and energises you.
After courses of radiotherapy, a couple of bouts of bacterial flu and the removal of a bit of my insides, it was taking a bit longer than I wanted to get properly back on my feet. Daily walks just didn’t do it and being shut inside a noisy gym was not my style.
I came across Nordic Walking at a country show and liked the idea of getting a workout at the same time as a sociable outdoor walk.
Well-organised training in the technique gave me the confidence to give it a go, and I loved it. In fact I enjoyed it so much that I decided to become a Nordic Walking UK instructor, trained to standards that are UK government recognised. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
As well as getting – and keeping – you fit, it gets you out in the fresh air, and introduces you to new friends. What’s not to like?
