Janine discovered Nordic walking in 2009 when she decided to take part in long-distance events. Her first ultra-marathon was the Forces March, billed as 5 marathons over 5 days. She did this dressed as a 6ft duck and for the Veteran’s Charity. She continued to use Nordic walking for fitness and keep her weight and blood pressure down. She loved the all over body conditioning and toning from the Nordic poles and at the same she could be exercising her five dogs and be outdoors. She has also been a keen open water swimmer, kayaker and backpacker.
Since 2010 she has mentored and coached many people to aspire to weight loss and fitness challenges. She has also taken on a few more challenges from 5km barefoot runs to 24-hour solo ultras.
At school, Janine hated sports and would avoid being in a gym. Fresh air fitness stimulates the mind, body and soul, on the soles and gives a feeling of wellbeing and wholeness. A change of perspective as to what exercise is and how much fun it can, with so many positive benefits, has switched Janine around to love “sports”.
She loves endurance events and shares her passion and anecdotes to inspire members to take up a challenge.
Her team-building events and girl parties have been successful. She enjoys creating walks of all kinds, from those to test your own strength of mind and body, to a themed party walk such as WALX with Hawks, Prosecco Parties with added bounce, Detox Breaks WALX …oh the list is endless.
Janine will help you re-discover your inner sparkle; WALX With Sole isn’t just about exercise but a way of life.
