    Andrea

    Role: WALX Coach

    As a physiotherapist, I have seen the amazing effects that being active outdoors can bring, not only to people’s mobility, but also their general health,sense of well-being and quality of life.

    Lauren

    Role: WALX Coach

    My love of walking came from 7 years living in New Zealand, where I explored every inch of the country.  Now I am fortunate to enjoy the beautiful countryside and coastline that Dorset has to offer.  I am extremely keen to help others enjoy the outdoors, meet new people and maximise all the health and wellbeing benefits Walking can bring.

    Pam

    Role: WALX Coach

    Now as a WALX Coach I am looking forward to encouraging others to join us to experience the benefits of Walking.

    I have a special interest in Wildlife and Wildlife photography  – you can often catch me early in the morning along the River Stour and at Arne Nature Reserve capturing the abundant wildlife on camera!

    Beautiful walks with some fantastic views and most walks finish up for a coffee and a chat.

    Lucie

    Role: WALX Master

    Lucie’s love of walking and the outdoors developed from spending 13 years in Scotland. She has undertaken walking challenges including Oxfam’s 100k Trialwalker and Bristol’s half marathon Sunshine Walk for Breast Cancer.

    Lucie co-ordinates the whole programme and delivers in all 3 categories including Yoga WALX !

     

    Lorien

    Role: WALX Coach

    I have lived in Poole for over half my life and am passionate about being active in our amazing local environment and landscape.

    While I work with all people and abilities I specialise in supporting people over the age of 60 who may or may not be experiencing medical challenges such as arthritis, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and joint replacement surgery

    Sally

    Role: WALX Coach

    I love being outside (in all weathers!!), working as part of a team, meeting new people and using the many transferable skills from my nursing background

    Lizzie

    Role: WALX Coach

    Lizzie’s Nordic walking journey began on her Personal training course in 2010 and she has been walking ever since. Moving to the Beautiful Isle of Purbeck in 2018 continued to fuel her passion for health and wellness, whilst being outdoors. Why wouldn’t you with scenery like this!

    Rob

    Role: WALX Coach

    I’ve always played sports from a young age and connected to friends, family and nature through physical activity, so it made sense to become firstly a swim coach, tennis coach and personal trainer and now a WALX Coach and Nordic Walking Instructor.

    Imagine working out in nature? What would it feel like and how would things be better if you did?

    Come and enjoy WALX with me, Rob Young.

    Gilly

    Role: WALX Coach

    Gilly is an energetic Mum of two who combines her love of walking with her job as a swimming teacher. Gilly teaches Nordic walking and Yoga WALX and leads WALX for all levels in and around Blandford and Thoncombe Woods.
