Festival review

I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to you and your team to arrange another fantastic festival. I thoroughly enjoyed the walks and workshops and the company of walkers from different areas.

Aiming to reach next birthday!

I love the sessions. You offer a good mix of different sessions each day …I like the fact you give alternative ways to work  - if like me you have a dodgy shoulder . I am certainly much fitter now than I have ever been .. My long term goal is to reach my next birthday!!!!

Thank you NW Watford

I literally would not have been in such a good place as I am now if it had not been for the regular contact with Nordic Walking Watford. The online challenges and zoom meets during locakdown have meant that I have felt part of what has become a very important group of people to me.

Message to My Instructor

I just want to say thank you for all the effort you put in to everything you do. Once again you are thinking of lots of extra things to do to keep ‘ your clan’ motivated. It is clear to me and I think to everyone that what you do is much more than your business - more of a passion to help and inspire people. So well done to you and the rest of your team - you’re doing a fantastic job”

Happy walker

I am over 8 stone lighter

I now typically enjoy three walks a week, it really has helped my weight loss, in the first year of my journey I have managed to shed 8 stone and have significantly improved my health, to the point of potentially reversing my heart condition much to the delight of my cardiologist.

There's always a variety of walks

My Instructor is really lovely and a patient teacher/leader. She, along with all the others in the team always put on a wide variety of interesting walks to suit different levels of stamina and ability. The company is always great and the views are wonderful, even when it’s pouring down (as long as you are dressed appropriately for the weather).

I encourage you to join!

I'd like to encourage people to join, I re started walking with this group last July and despite lockdowns have become so much fitter (and slimmer), exercising outdoors with other people is fab and you get to see bits of the local area you never knew existed (despite living here all my life!) You will have lots of fun at the same time as getting fitter and making friends

A workout that's not a workout!

I HATE to exercise-- but I quite like walking! So, why not turn "just walking" into "exercise"? With very little instruction necessary, and a small investment in proper Nordic Walking poles, I quickly felt secure in the technique. Now-- every time I need to go out (or sometimes just for fun! Imagine!!) I take my poles with me and really WALK! It feels like a workout without BEING workout! Hurrah!!”

Great experience with my local group

On both walks we have felt welcomed and at ease with the group, it has been a pleasure walking with them while having a few laughs along the way. At no time were we made to feel awkward or uncomfortable. We have both enjoyed our initial experiences and will be signing up for other walks over the coming weeks.

A message to my Instructor

You and your team are inspirational and I hope you recognise how much you are both involved in making people aspire and attain a love of being outside, walking and staying healthy.
