I run Nordic Walking Tasters, Courses and Walks as part of my Transforming Ageing programme. I am passionate about slowing down the ageing process and making sure that we live our best life after 50!
As we approach our 50’s, 60’s and beyond it is more important than ever that we pay special attention to what our bodies need in order to ensure that our health span will equal our life span. This is even more important these days since we are all living longer. It is possible that once you reach ‘retirement’ (a term which really does not benefit us) you will have a further 30-40 years!
Our exercise programme should consist of both strength and cardiovascular training. There is no better cardiovascular (aerobic) exercise for the 50 plus age group than Nordic Walking. It is low impact, works the whole body and our walks are very social.
We want to encourage people to exercise outdoors, to get back to nature, breathe in some fresh air and explore the beautiful countryside around us.
In SW Manchester we are lucky enough to have Sale and Chorlton Water Parks, the River Mersey, the Bridgewater Canal and many lovely National Trust properties just on our doorstep.

Nordic Walking? “No way!” I said 8 years ago. But…I tried it…was hooked in 5 minutes….was qualified as an Nordic Walking Instructor 3 days later and now take my poles with me everywhere.
As a Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer by profession I always look for ways to get the maximum benefit with the least amount of time from whatever I do. Incorporating the whole body into walking just makes so much sense. The use of Nordic Walking poles enable us to keep the whole body fit, burns more calories and the possibility of walking much faster with very little extra effort. The other benefits of being outdoors and socializing at the same time make it a no brainer!
I also offer Private and Semi-Private Pilates and Functional Fitness Training at The Sale Pilates Studio in Sale Moor
