“When I answered an ad on the internet to try Nordic walking I never thought that my life would have changed beyond belief. Less than 3 years ago I was overweight and unable to walk more than 1 mile. Now I can easily manage an 8 to 10 mile walk, feel so much fitter and the scales do not lie what with the slimming world and my Nordic walking I am 4 stone lighter and have a new lease of life in my step and a whole load of us walk together and I am happy to say we are friends and everyone in the group is supportive. This year alone with Mercian Nordic walking I have been to Cornwall in the south and Saddleworth in the north plus loads of walks in between finishing the years trip to the Somme walking the battlefields in October. I can barely believe it but what I can say to all of you who read this and are thinking of getting fitter, look no further, come and give it a try. Search out now and if you live around Bromsgrove Worcester and Wyre forest check out Mercian Nordic Walking and find yourself a beginners course. That’s what I did and I have never looked back”
