    Getting to grips with the snow!


    As we have had another significant snow fall recently in rural Leicestershire, I thought I would do a quick review of Yaktrax Walkers, which fit over your boot or shoe to give more grip in the snow and ice. Rather than write a long spiel, I thought it might be helpful to do a quick […]

    Exercise and chat!

    I really enjoyed the session yesterday afternoon and went home on a real high from the exercise and the chat!

    A full body workout!

    I just wanted to extend my thanks for today's session. I got home and walked the dog, and felt like I'd been to the gym for a full body workout which is exactly what I wanted.

    I could not recommend 'WALX' more highly to people of all ages! 

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Nordic Walking session and it has transformed the way I walk daily. It is the perfect way to de-stress and there were moments in the session where I was completely transfixed by the marching beat I was making with my poles. I could not recommend 'WALX' more highly to people of all ages! Amanda was engaging, able to answer every question I had during the walk and great with communication before the session. Thank you!

    Raring to go!

    Great 121 session with Amanda this morning at Everards Meadows. Got my Freedom Passport, lots of motivation, and am raring to go!

    Feeling Fabulous

    I never came out of a gym session feeling like I did yesterday!
