“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”
