I have been Nordic Walking since 2015 after surgery in 2014 left my stomach and pelvic floor muscles extremely weak. After the surgery I quickly gained weight, became very unfit and I struggled to regain my fitness. I was gifted a beginners Nordic Walking lesson from Bristol Nordic Walking for my birthday from a friend which I was initially reluctant to go to as I thought it probably wasn’t something I would enjoy, BUT I can honestly say I’ve never looked back. I lost weight and was fitter than I’ve been for years even though in those early days I was walking only once a week.

Knowing how beneficial Nordic Walking has been to my own health and fitness, I wanted to share my passion with others so decided to train as an instructor and completed the INWA/British Nordic Walking instructor course in February 2019. In January 2020 I also passed the Level 2 “Fitness for Walking” qualification which compliments my instructor training, and I now love to spread my love of Nordic walking to as many people as I can!
