Tracy is an accredited Instructor and Delivery Partner for Nordic Walking UK. She is the owner of Nordic Walking Watford and delivers TECHNIQUE courses and leads regular walks, both during the week and at weekends.
Having had two children and several courses of treatment for Breast Cancer, I started 2015 at an all-time low in terms of fitness and wellbeing. I knew I wanted to get back into regular exercise but was struggling to find something that would work for me. I stumbled across Nordic Walking, liked the idea of exercising outdoors and booked my course… I was hooked!
Fast forward to 2019, and I am fitter than I have been for a long time, a few stone lighter and loving Nordic Walking! I now enjoy taking part in endurance walking and successfully completed the iconic Race to the Stones in July 2016, Race to the King and the Purbeck Marathon in 2017 and the Yorkshire Three Peaks in 2018.
I firmly believe that Nordic Walking has something to offer everyone – from those who haven’t exercised for some time through to those who train regularly. As a Nordic Walking Instructor, I aim to encourage and inspire people to get active through Nordic Walking and realise the many benefits it can bring.
Our walks are always enjoyable, even on a rainy day, and the members of our group are very supportive and encouraging of each other.
