Nordic Ambling with Alison Clark
Show Notes

Today I’m talking to Alison Clark from Nottingham.  After a career in nursing, Alison qualified as a Nordic Walking Instructor in August 2017, and works as a volunteer instructor with British Nordic Walking. Projects have introduced her to the needs of a range of people who might feel challenged by a fast paced walk in a group of people they perceive as fitter than them.  She realised that many people find the idea of a ‘workout’ walk  too daunting and intimidating.. Her experience of walking with people with a range of health conditions helped her identify the need for someone to offer a Nordic Walk which takes things at a slower pace.

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
