Stroke Rehabilitation and Nordic Walking with Derek Holloway
Show Notes

In this episode, I’m talking to Derek Holloway, who qualified as a British Nordic Walking instructor in September 2021, which is a remarkable achievement, as in 2018, during the Beast from the East, Derek contracted pneumonia.  Whilst in hospital recovering, he suffered a stroke, which affected his limbs and mobility.  Through perseverance, physiotherapy and nordic walking, Derek has regained his fitness and has kindly agreed to share his experience with us today.

If you have enjoyed this podcast, I would be very grateful if you could show your support by buying me a coffee!  This enables me to continue producing these podcasts, as it will go towards covering the server and podcast platform licenses.   Not only is Nordic Walking a whole body workout, but it is also one of the safest and most sociable way to exercise.  Classes always finish up in a cafe enjoying a coffee together. Many thanks, Mary x
