I first heard of Nordic walking many years ago but it did not become an integral part of my life until November 2018 when I attended a talk and demonstration by an experienced and very motivational instructor. I was intrigued by everything it offered and two days later I was on a ‘Learn To’ course, meeting new people, learning the technique and exercising outdoors, not in a gym!
A few walks later I was hooked!
I felt refreshed and invigorated, mentally and physically, after every walk, regained my love of nature by being surrounded by the beauty of the New Forest, and motivated to manage my weight better.
I was in a position where I could completely change my career path and being a Nordic Walking Instructor and Delivery Partner meant that I could share with others how Nordic Walking could enhance their lives as a social and fun form of exercise, kind on the body while meeting new people and enjoying the great outdoors.
