Having had a tough last 18 months, with one thing and another, I knew I needed to find something that would energise and revitalise me. As I have always enjoyed walking and trekking, when I read an article on Nordic Walking in a newspaper, I decided to look to see if I could find a local instructor. From the very first session with John, I knew that I had found a very rewarding activity! I now walk every week with a small group of like minded enthusiasts under John's guidance, and it is not only providing me with enormous fitness benefits, but is also, at the same, very enjoyable.
Nordic walking with John at Bedgebury forest provides the perfect combination of good cardio workout and being outside in nature. John’s experience of guiding walks and his knowledge of anatomy means that we are very well looked after, with plenty of interesting routes and tips along the way. I throughly recommend it.
I have been Nordic walking with this group since January 2019. I was looking to improve my general fitness and stamina for long distance walking events. I have certainly achieved that! I really look forward to the sessions, the groups are friendly and welcoming. John is a fantastic leader, taking us on a variety of routes, with strength and stability exercises along the way in the beautiful Kent countryside. As John is a sports scientist and holistic health coach, he is a fountain of knowledge, often giving health tips and advice. I have never felt healthier or fitter than I do right now. I would not hesitate to recommend John and Walk Fresh Health.
