Hello! I am Tracy and I am the nordic walking Instructor for Sherwood Nordic Walking. I am an Instructor Member of British Nordic Walking and am proud to teach the International Nordic Walking Federation (INWA) 10-step technique. This is the only method that will ensure you learn the full technique in order to get the most out of your nordic walking.
Nordic walking is a fantastic activity that anyone can have a go – there is much more to it than meets they eye. Combining your natural walking style, excellent tuition and a pair of special poles nordic walking turns a natural activity into a workout.
With nordic walking you can get fit in the fresh air, meet new people and appreciate the beautiful countryside all at the same time.
I am fully insured and outdoor first aid training and offer Beginner’s Technique courses every month at Thoresby Park. Along with our three Walk Leaders, who are also insured and first aid trained, we offer a variety of nordic ‘Adventure’ walks of 4-6 miles every week day. Our Walk Leader-led slower Adventure walks of 4 miles take place once a week.
Our regular venues for walks include Thoresby Park, Langold Country Park, Clumber Park, RSPB Sherwood Forest, Sherwood Pines, The Chesterfield Canal, Everton and the Idle Valley Nature Reserve. We also meet at various pub carparks and cafés and have a variety of countryside walks.
Nordic walking is becoming more and more popular as people realise it is more than just ‘walking with sticks’. Make that first step, book a taster or a course and come and give it a go!
