Getting out in the countryside and exercising at the same time is a perfect combination. The mix of lots of different ways to exercise and a good healthy way of eating is perfect for good health and wellbeing.
Vivo Fitness and Ridgeway Nordic Walking can provide any client with the right solution and such a great team to work with.
I came to Nordic Walking after getting well from a life debilitating illness and a desire to walk the length of this beautiful land: Britain. As a lifetime lover of walking, I became very despondent when I was struck down with ME/CFS and told I would never be well enough to walk in our wonderful countryside again.
Thankfully I did regain my health through alternative therapies, and am now a hypnotherapist and life coach working with people to be the best they can be, and an exceedingly proud member of ‘The end to enders’ club of length of Britain walkers since 2013.
NW seems a very natural part of the healing and life affirming process and so I trained as a NW leader. My deepest pleasure in life is walking the hills and countryside of Britain, and as such like to get out there for hours at a time. My walking style is steady over distance, whilst taking a little time to appreciate all that is around us. So if a 2+ hour walk through the Hertfordshire countryside covering approximately 6 miles takes your fancy, then I very much look forward to meeting you and sharing in our beautiful land whilst having a full body workout: what could be better?
I am a newly qualified fitness instructor and recently qualified Personal Trainer but also work full time in Social Care. I discovered Nordic Walking through Karen and i find with such a busy life, it is just fab to take an hour or two out of the week to take in the beautiful countryside, fresh air, and have a natter…all whilst burning fat and keeping healthy. Nordic Walking is great for me as it is can vary in impact and intensity and works the whole body at what ever level you walk at, whilst meeting new people and enjoying the great outdoors! I loved it so much my Mum and Dad are now both avid Nordic Walkers with Ridgeway Nordic Walking.
Emma has an art and design background, originally training as a textile designer. Having worked in the greeting card industry for over 20 years, Emma’s long standing passion for the outdoors has finally tempted her away from her desk and out into the countryside.
An enthusiastic ‘holiday walker’, around the stunning landscape of the South West, Emma was introduced to Nordic Walking several years ago by her inspirational personal trainer, Karen Lem of local Ridgeway Nordic Walking.
Emma soon realised the importance and substantial health benefits that Nordic Walking can offer to all ages and abilities. Recently training, initially as a walk leader, and now an instructor, Emma’s aim is to motivate and encourage everyone to live a happy, healthy and active life, recognising the importance of green space interaction in our daily lives.
Wanting to share this enthusiasm, Emma’s walks are designed to challenge and inspire the body and mind and always with a SMILE!
I have always kept myself fit, spending 22 years in the military gave me a love of the outdoors. I can’t think of anything better than Nordic Walking with a group of people who have the same love of the outdoors.
I found Nordic Walking by accident, but loved it immediately. After my taster session I purchased a set of poles and progressed from there, walking on average around 30 to 40 miles a week.
It’s a whole-body exercise everyone can do, there’s no limitation on age or fitness level. Nordic Walking is now my main fitness strategy, after 42 years of being a cyclist but no longer allowed to ride, Nordic Walking is my new passion.
