“Just to let you know I’m still Nordic Walking every day, sometimes twice a day.   I absolutely love it and can’t bear to walk without my poles as I seem to walk so slowly without them!   I try very hard to push it every day for a 45min-1 hour walk with Dollie.   I’m pushing it a bit more each day, now able to do a cross between Gears 2 & 4, and double poles I love!  I can’t quite make a pure Gear 3 I’m afraid, the best I make is a new “Heather” Gear 2.5 ha ha!!

Don’t know if I told you this, but I’ve toned up all over, have lost nearly a stone and 1 1/2 ” off my stomach (weight I put on after my surgery!) and my arms have never been so toned.  I think this is mostly down to my daily Nordic Walks, as I just don’t have the time to go the gym more than once a week (twice if I’m lucky!), I’m eating sensibly but haven’t cut anything out.   It’s a no brainer, if you walk you might as well gain the extra benefit of pushing yourself with the poles, pushing the heart harder and burning more cals!  I keep telling people to give it a try!

I just wanted to thank you for introducing me to Nordic Walking, it  has made me walk so much faster, and when I’m on level ground, and trying to push myself hard,  I almost run, it’s the closest I’ve ever come to flying!”
