About Ed

Ed Woolley is a qualified British Nordic Walking Instructor and MIAS mountain bike instructor.

My Story

After working in Cardiff for a number of years I heard of a volunteering position with a lottery-funded organisation. Having always been physically active I took up the position accompanying people on walks and bike rides. In 2009 I had an opportunity to work with Groundwork Caerphilly. It was here that I was given the opportunity to train on two courses: Nordic Walk Instructor and Mountain Bike Instructor. In 2010 my contract ended and in 2011 as a qualified instructor I set up my own classes, gradually building a good membership.
