In February 2018 I discovered Mercian Nordic Walking.  My life changed almost immediately!  Walking having fun, making new friends and being encouraged to improve my fitness. In 12 months I lost 2 stone. I am fitter and happier than ever before.

Being very active in my youth, participating in most sports and dance, I soon discovered health and fitness was very important to me. However, marriage and having children got in the way of me pursuing a fitness career. Once the children were off to school. I started my studies.  I achieved a sports science degree and several fitness qualifications a City and Guilds adult teachers certificate also Beauty therapist qualification

This finally lead me to owing my own health and fitness centre, where I enjoyed 18 years of helping others  to enjoy exercise is an environment that was controlled and stress free.  Due to loss of premises the business closed.

I then embarked on a career in Hotel management.  Over 15 years, I became the text book image of an over worked, stressed, overweight adult.

At 63 I discovered  Mercian Nordic Walking. Thanks to Ian and his team, I have rediscovered my love of exercise. Even better than that I have now discovered the great out doors and an very enjoyable way of keeping fit and healthy

I am so excited that I have been asked to join Ian’s team as a walk leader.  Funny how life goes around.  I shall enjoy many years of helping others to enjoy exercising out doors being fit having fun and making new friends.
