Well what another few months! Since the birth of WALX Salisbury back in September let’s just say it’s been a bit of a roller-coaster ride! Lockdown has halted our group walks but we’ve still been meeting ‘virtually’ for alternative fitness workouts and chats, it is what makes us, the WALX community, so different. Walking on […]
Well what a few months? Pre Covid I was working for a walking travel company and after a lockdown working on a business plan and shedule of amazing WALX, here I am running my very own WALX group. WALX Salisbury is a walking group with fun fitness and wellness at the heart From late September […]

I had the most wonderful hour with Marisa this morning doing her Monday Morning Wellness Walx in Victoria Park. I really can't recommend it highly enough. I did everything at my own pace and she was really sensitive to my aches and pains. It was a great start to the week on such a beautiful morning. We finished off with a coffee at the newly opened Woodbar Cafe in the park.
I walk with Marisa and others in the group it's great to improve fitness and see lots of new places ,meet new people and enjoy country side too. It really has been a joy.
My New Year’s resolution was to get fit in 2021 and my only likeable exercise is walking so joined WALX Salisbury and Marisa who introduced me to Nordic Walking. After Power of the Poles I was ready to go but Lockdown happened, however undeterred Marisa did sessions via zoom to keep her group active and ready for walking properly. I have now been out on several walks with Marisa, she is very experienced, has great patience and skilled in so many areas. Ability to encourage you along ensuring you are walking correctly to gain the full benefits of a workout whilst simultaneously pointing out flora and fauna! Cannot recommend Marisa and WALX enough a full body workout without you realising it enjoying the company of others for convivial chatting and exploring our local countryside.
Marisa is a great instructor, very patient and encouraging. Loved my Power of Poles session and am now hooked! Invested in my own poles with Marisa's guidance and now they go with me everywhere! Great low-impact way to get fitter. Looking forward to more group walks soon.
I have to admit I was slightly anxious about the idea of Nordic walking! Who wants to walk with two sticks? (I think a lot of people do need to be educated that having two poles does not mean you are retired!) After one lesson with Marisa I have not looked back. She gave me the confidence to enjoy Nordic walking. Not only do I now walk faster, but I generally feel much fitter. The poles are ideal for both town and country walks.
I saw Marisa’s Facebook post and her timing was perfect. At 34 I suffered a slipped disc and suffered with my back for 10 years resulting in two spinal operations and left with nerve damage in my leg and now having to walk with a stick. 3years on I started to suffer with my hip, I didn’t enjoy walking due to constant pain, but knew I needed to keep mobile and exercise would help. The idea of walking with 2 poles made me think I’d be more aligned. So I booked my introduction with Marisa, learned how to walk with Nordic poles and can say the last 3 months has eased some of my pain and got me outside in the fresh air exercising. Plus I was right, instantly I felt more upright! Needless to say my consultant and physiotherapist were delighted when I told them I’d taken up Nordic pole walking!
Marisa inspired me from the first day I met her to get out more and see our beautiful county on foot. The 1-1 POP session was amazing and I now walk comfortably with my poles as much as possible. Marisa is also a lovely person and great company to be with, I can highly recommend her and thank her for the effort she puts in to WALX Salisbury for all of us.
Marisa is competent, professional, motivational and a jolly nice person to boot! I’ve had some really lovely walks with her and even in lock-down she is keeping me motivated with her virtual sessions and Facebook challenges.
Brilliant walk today with the lovely Walx Salisbury, getting @kitchen.social up off our lockdown bums and out in the fresh air. thank you so much, going to try and make this regular.
Thank you for these 'lockdown' virtual sessions they are great and so very informative, I really look forward to them.
Immediately I met Marisa, I felt her energy and positivity - I will be on as many WALX as possible from now on
