Having recently reduced my working hours, I was very excited at the prospect of having time to fill. I have always loved the great outdoors, and have enjoyed many of the wonderful walks that our lovely county of Dorset has to offer.
As a physiotherapist, I have seen the amazing effects that being active outdoors can bring, not only to people’s mobility, but also their general health,sense of well-being and quality of life.
I am fairly new to Nordic walking, but can already feel the benefits.My usual walks were working my legs and heart, but what about my core and arms? How great to be able to work them all at once with the magnificent views of Dorset, and lovely people to share my walks with.
I am passionate about keeping people active at any age, but as we age, sometimes the options to keep active are less appealing. Going for a lovely walk with like minded people seems like a no- brainer.
So if that appeals to you, why don’t you come and join us. Hopefully you’ll love it as much as we do.
