“I have never found an exercise activity that I really enjoy before, but now I have found myself on a fit for life course and take part in muscle strength and endurance classes too.
I have walked and exercised twice a week with Ian and have taken advantage of the numerous walks all over our beautiful countryside.
As you can see from the picture, it has changed me – dramatically, even banishing my double chin!
I want my story to inspire people to get active. Nordic walking might look a bit strange but the poles offer upper body resistance thereby working 90% of your muscles. It has, quite simply, changed my life.
I feel fitter, healthier and have more energy, all achieved by going for a purposeful walk.
The walks range from easy to very hard and you can choose your level”
