John Challis

An outdoor man, John is an off-road mountain bike, keen paddle boarder and rides motor-bikes. Nordic Walking is now his main recreation and is essential to his wellbeing!

An Orthopaedic Surgeon for many years he learnt to Nordic Walk in 2005 himself having undergone major hip surgery! It has led to him wanting to help those who are aiming to increase their mobility and sense of wellbeing and general fitness.
