About Rachel

My Story

I first came across Nordic Walking whilst I was cross country skiing in Norway.  Several years later I started a contract in Leeds and came across a Nordic Walking Instructor and started walking again.  After I finished the contract I had to move to Manchester for health reasons.  To help me recover from major surgery I decided to start Nordic Walking, I couldn’t find an instructor so I decided to become an instructor myself and here I am.

Come along and have a go, you will be pleasantly surprised. To book a session please phone or email me.

Get fit and have fun doing it, I look forward to meeting you.
