Our intention is to help Instructors to fast track their way to building fantastic sessions and lively sociable groups without having to think through how to structure their classes, promote themselves, manage the financials and all those other complications that come as standard with self employment. Our experts have thought it all through so all you need to do is be an amazing Instructor and help us to get more people more active.

ADDITIONAL MODULES & QUALIFICATIONS

So many people can benefit from Nordic Walking and that’s why we have also developed modules and qualifications to ensure our instructors are suitably skilled to deliver programmes to children, older adults and those with medical conditions.

Our vision is simple – train and support amazing Instructors to deliver quality programmes in communities, schools, hospitals and workplaces and give them the tools, PR and skills they need to succeed.

We always try to ensure that new Instructors work closely with existing ones to enhance the Nordic walking in an area and create a motivated team approach!

Here are two testimonials that were sent to NWUK about one Instructor who qualified with us earlier this year.

“Within a few weeks of starting Nordic Walking with Ian, I noticed a huge improvement to a shoulder problem I have had for some time. The NW technique with poles has given me a workout for my shoulders without even realising it. Together with the stretches in the ‘warm up’ I have regained almost all range of movement in my ‘bad’ shoulder. More importantly, I have been able to use my shoulder without pain. What a fantastic and enjoyable way to get fit. Thanks Ian.”

“A propos of my gardening the week before last: after just over 4 weeks learning to Nordic Walk coming to you as a just retired tired unfit 76 year old, I was able to dig over my 3 veg plots and dig out my compressed compost heap for use. Thank you for the reinvigorated strength in my core, legs and arms. Sue”
