Hello! My name is Tracy, and I discovered Nordic Walking back in 2016 when I was looking for an outdoor activity that would complement my sedentary freelance proofreading job. As soon as I joined a 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 with more zest and vigour!
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 wonderful Wales and when I moved ‘Up North’ I struggled to find a local Nordic Walking group that offered me a variety of walks not too far from my new home. So I set up Sherwood Nordic Walking in order to offer to people in my area the wealth of benefits that walking with poles brings!
I am qualified to teach the full Nordic Walking technique and am currently offering regular Taster sessions, Technique courses, Adventure walks of 3-5 miles and Wellness walks of 2-3 miles.
My regular venues for walks include Thoresby Park, Langold Country Park, The Chesterfield Canal and Idle Valley.
Nordic walking and meeting new and interesting people is good for the mind, body and soul. Give it a go – you won’t look back!
