What our Walkers Say

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

Easy & Relaxed

Nicely eased into and not as though being taught. Easy and relaxed but with a positive outcome. Well worth the money and will be calling back to get further training and group walks.

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

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
