What our Walkers Say

Loved It

Loved it! I was beginning to despair as to what exercises I could do and that would improve my bad back and think I’ve found it. Really friendly and professional instructor

Loved every minute of it

I had my Nordic Walking beginners session today with Ros and loved every minute of it. Having health issues I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to keep up but Ros was very encouraging and reassured me that I could go at my own pace. The class was small enough that we all got really

Absolutely Loved It

Absolutely loved my beginners session with Ros. She was patient,professional,knowledgeable & good fun. I learnt so much & loved how it felt to walk using many more muscle groups than I ever have before! Ros explained everything so thoroughly & the reasons why we do things in a certain way. I live in Chippenham but

Really enjoyed the lesson and Lindsay’s enthusiasm for NW was almost infectious! A little more to perfecting the technique than I thought. Felt good and ready to do more.

First ever session

Did my first ever Nordic walking session today and am completely hooked. Definitely feel as though a few muscles have woken up and need a bit more attention. Learning the techniques and remembering everything will take a while for it to come naturally so first thing I did leaving the Downs was call in to

A great way to start exercising again

I was annoyingly late due to traffic hold ups and was expecting to have missed the class, but Ros couldn’t have been more accommodating letting me join and catch up. Really friendly class at good beginner pace to go through techniques and it feels like a great way to start exercising again after recovering from

So glad I took the plunge!

I was really nervous about joining a class, but after 18 months of Covid restrictions and working from home I decided I needed to make changes in life and took the plunge!
I chose Nordic walking due to the full package of benefits it offered.
I cannot thank Ros enough (instructor) for providing

Clear & Encouraging

Very clear and encouraging instruction from Ros. I’m hooked after my first walk! I absolutely loved it, and it was very mindful. I noticed after my first walk, my chest and spine has also increased flexibility. I will definitely recommend you give it a try.

Interesting, challenging and fun.

Having led a fairly sedentary life apart from a bit of fair-weather walking and gardening, I thought it was about time I started to increase my fitness and strength. I don’t play sports, don’t fancy going to gyms or swimming pools but I wanted to try something new. I signed up for a Nordic Walking

Totally Hooked !

I had always wanted to run but never really enjoyed it. Then I heard about Nordic walking on the radio and thought I would give it a try. So I booked onto a beginners workshop and was hooked. I have been Nordic walking for 5 years now and love it. I signed up for the

A great way to get fit and be sociable

I joined BNW over 3 years ago and it has been brilliant at improving my fitness, posture and core strength. I have made new friends who I have been able to walk with during various lockdowns, which has kept me fit and sane !! They have also organised great trips away in the past, which

Simply Awesome !

I should really write 2 reviews: one for the sport of Nordic Walking, which is simply awesome and so good for you, and one for Bristol Nordic Walking who put on amazing walks in great places. Seriously, if you want to get fit without injuring yourself, meet some lovely people and spend lots of time
