If you like the idea of Nordic Walking, if you haven’t tried Nordic Walking or if you are just intrigued by the name, then Jane’s your woman!  Nordic Walking is fun, inspirational and challenging.  Walking briskly with the whole body, by using the poles, is very exhilarating and it gets your heart pumping, your blood flowing and you into the fresh air and countryside.  When I am Nordic Walking I forget about my day, my worries and the things that niggle and just enjoy being out and about and really working my body.  With Jane (and our poles) I have thoroughly explored the local area and even been on several “adventure walks” through Abbots Langley, Nash Mills, Whippendale Woods and beyond. I love Nordic Walking and my only regret is that I didn’t discover it sooner.  I do Nordic Walking with Jane on a regular basis, once a week, and have found it really beneficial to have a trained instructor who pushes you just that bit further and includes various exercises using the poles, in addition to the actual walking.  Nordic Walking has been a fantastic addition to my exercise programme for a number of reasons: it is more strenuous than an everyday walk, it is good for your heart and blood pressure, it is good for your upper body, especially your arms and shoulders and being outside has an almost spiritual quality, as admiring the scenery takes your mind off the exercise 🙂   Thank you, Jane.”
