Walking On Air
Becoming a Nordic Walking National Trainer with Steve Ellis
Show Notes

In episode 47, I am once again speaking to British Nordic Walking National Trainer, Steve Ellis, from Malmesbury, Wiltshire.  Steve founded Gemini Outdoor Adventure Ltd, and is a qualified ‘Mountain Leader’ and ‘International Mountain Leader.  Steve is about to move to New Zealand, where he will continue his work as a National Trainer.  During our chat he mentions two other National Trainers, who have been fantastic guests on this show.  Steve was trained initially by Karen Ingram, who has appeared twice to discuss how Nordic Walking can help reduce Back Pain, as well as explaining everything you need to know about Nordic Walking Poles.  Catherine Hughes, who is CEO of British Nordic Walking has shared her knowledge about the history of Nordic Walking. Steve mentions INWA on several occasions, which is the term used for the International Nordic Walking Association, of which British Nordic Walking is a member.  Steve joins me today to explain what is involved in the role of National Trainer and how he came to qualify.

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
