About Zoe

My story

I am an INWA British Nordic Walking Instructor. I come from a teaching background and started Nordic Walking 12 months ago, when I gave up running due to knee and hip pain. Nordic Walking gives me a whole body work out similar to running, with greatly reduced impact on my joints. I also suffered from shoulder tension and find that the technique of Nordic walking has really helped to keep my back and shoulders loose and comfortable.

I work as a Walking Coordinator for Brightstripe Cultural Health and trained as a Nordic Walking instructor to offer a progression activity to my walkers on the Walking for Health scheme. I have also trained community groups in order for them to run their own free community Nordic Walks.
