Hello! My name is Tracy and I am Lead Instructor at Sherwood Nordic Walking.
I discovered Nordic Walking in 2016 when I was looking for an outdoor activity that would get me away from my desk and active outdoors. As soon as I joined my local Nordic Walking group and started walking regularly I found I had more energy, felt uplifted and generally happier and able to get on with my day-to-day life. I also made some fabulous new friends.
I enjoy being outside in the fresh air, blowing away the cobwebs, appreciating our beautiful countryside and noticing nature as it changes through the seasons – with Nordic Walking I can do all of this and get a great work out at the same time!
I am originally from Snowdonia and when I moved ‘Up North’ to the North Nottinghamshire/South Yorkshire border I struggled to find a local Nordic Walking group that offered me a good variety of walks not too far from my new home. A dear friend suggested I train as an Instructor and set up my own group and so Sherwood Nordic Walking was born.
I am fully insured and qualified to teach the INWA (International Nordic Walking) Nordic Walking technique and am currently offering monthly Technique courses, Technique walks, Adventure walks of 4-6 miles, Gentle Adventure walks and Wellbeing walks of 2-3 miles.
My regular venues for walks include Thoresby Park, Langold Country Park, Clumber Park, The Chesterfield Canal and Idle Valley. We also meet at various pub carparks and cafes and have a varied countryside walks.
Nordic walking and meeting new and interesting people is so good for the mind, body and soul. Give it a go, we would love to meet you!
