My Story

I have always enjoyed being active and taking part in outdoor pursuits and some sport including triathlon at ironman distance.  In 2011 an injury to my right knee changed that when I was informed that I should cease running.  In an effort to maintain my fitness level and avoid any further injury to my knee I started Nordic Walking.  I have found that it is the perfect way to exercise and has benefitted me tremendously.  I particularly love the fact you are outdoors and require only a set of poles to get going.   I now offer Nordic Walking classes in the Hereford and Gloucester areas and work extensively with people with Parkinson’s disease and similar neuro-muscular conditions.
