A friend taught me how to walk around 4 years ago. I loved the way it helped me up hills. I used to hate hills, I would be warn out quickly and it would hurt my knees, so much so I would be unable to walk properly afterwards. Nordic Walking gave me the ability to walk up and down hills easily and not hurt my knees. Only me over pushing myself is the problem now????

Becoming an instructor is amazing because you suddenly realise how versatile Nordic walking is and more amazingly how many people that you can truly help.

I love helping and teaching people, before coming back to Nordic Walking I was and still am an art teacher and Swimming Instructor. Having the opportunity to be outside helping people was just irresistible.
