Testimonials

A lovely set of walkers and very friendly right from the start with excellent tuition and breathtaking walks. I am not a fast walker and often find myself at the back and the group has always been very accommodating and I have never felt a burden. In fact, I feel much better for the rest of the day after the walk. Nordic Walking with Christiane, Linda and Vanessa is to be thoroughly recommended

I started Nordic Walking following arthroscopies on both knees in my late forties.  I wanted to take an holistic approach to building up my muscle strength and liked the idea of a walking technique that takes strain away from the legs and gives the upper body a good workout too. Christiane’s introductory sessions were informative and fun and I really enjoyed the monthly Saturday walks.  When my working commitments decreased I was able to get out more in the week and soon found myself enjoying the regular company of people I’ve come to regard as friends, not just walking companions. As well as fulfilling my aim of keeping mobile without taking painkillers, Nordic Walking means fresh air, discovering more of our fantastic countryside, interesting conversations and great exercise, all without any pressure.  You turn up as and when you can and are always made welcome, whether two or a dozen people are heading out that day. I can’t recommend it enough!

Christiane's walks are very sociable and I love getting out in the Hampshire countryside without having to worry about consulting maps and routes. We walk at a good pace so they don't eat too much into my busy schedule, and I can get back to work having had a good amount of fresh air and exercise.

"I joined Christiane's Nordic walking group with some trepidation as I knew no- one and this walking with poles sounded weird! Christiane and her team,Linda and Vanessa, could not have been more helpful and caring. They treat everyone as individuals and are mindful of each person's needs and requirements. My fitness levels have greatly improved and I have made some wonderful friends on the way.I have now discovered areas of Hampshire I knew nothing about. I absolutely recommend this Nordic Walking group.
