I have always walked my dogs but had no one to talk to while tramping round the countryside. I discovered Nordic Walking through a chance conversation with Sylvia and went along for a learn to, then some lessons, then walks. In fact I love it so much I first trained as a walk leader. After completing the Chichester Half Marathon in 2015 I was so enthused I became a Nordic Walking Instructor. Now I can walk and talk to lots of people, I’m in my element.
What I love about Nordic Walking is the ability to get outside and get fit. Chichester Nordic Walking group is so friendly I’ve met some lovely people and made some good friends. We’ve had a few weekends away Nordic Walking of course down in Swanage and the Lake District. I also really enjoy the social side of coffee after a walk.
Like many of us I have niggles and injuries over the years, aching knees and a bad back to name a few but Nordic Walking is a good way to remain mobile, and a great way to get fit, the poles make all the difference. I love leading all the types of walks especially for those who might be want to return to fitness, and speedier walks for those who want a more cardio experience.
I would say come and give Nordic Walking a try.
