Bill Wright comments, “I took the training course in Nordic Walking (NW) a year ago and although I haven’t done as much as I wished, when I do, I find it invigorating and therapeutic. The major benefits are in my posture, left arm mobility, cardiovascular fitness and co-ordination. After the initial training, NW is a bit like marching, you swing your arms up before bringing the pole down onto the ground. This gives the upper body exercise as well as the legs and, if like me, you have one arm which doesn’t work so well when you are walking, this gets it moving! Once you get the hang of it, there’s also a range of weekly walks run by Trevor. These vary in length and fitness level required: my favourite is Portobello Beach on a Thursday morning – a bracing walk along the beach for an hour starting at 10am.”
