Multiple Sclerosis and Nordic Walking with Marion Endt-Jones
Show Notes

In  episode #22, I speak to Marion Endt-Jones, who runs NordicFit+ in Manchester. As well as teaching art history and working as a German language tutor, Marion trained as a ski instructor in Germany in the mid 90s.  She began Nordic Walking in the summer of 2004 with her local ski club, as a social off-season activity, and has never stopped.   She qualified as an instructor with British Nordic Walking in 2016 and is also a certified fitness and Exercise Referral instructor.

Marion has experienced the health benefits of Nordic Walking first hand: Nordic Walking has  helped her during and after her two pregnancies, through her diagnosis with degenerative arthritis in her left knee and with MS, which is the subject of this podcast.

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
