    I decided to try Nordic walking a couple of months ago with 2 friends. We are really happy to have chosen to go with Nordic 4. Katie has been so patient and encouraging, a great teacher. We are now enjoying weekly walks with Katie, while improving our technique and fitness. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Mary McConalogue

    I recently saw the consultant who operated twice on my fractured elbow in 2018 – it’s hard to say who was more excited as we looked at the xrays together! Weekly Nordic walking under Katie’s positive and tireless instruction has played a huge role in recovery as my elbow extends now so well. Feeling strong and fit I’m sure nobody notices my once very bent and stiff arm. Thankyou KA!

    I learned Nordic Walking with Katie a few years ago, and periodically do the ‘Come for a Walk’ walks. Katie’s an outstanding teacher, very thorough and focuses on each individual in the class, ensuring that good technique is maintained and no bad habits slip in. She also challenges us to stretch ourselves and improve our fitness – but always a very personalised approach. I can’t recommend her highly enough!

    Katie tailors each session to you so that your exercise regime is bespoke. Week by week you can see your fitness improve but it’s such a pleasure exercising in the gorgeous countryside that you almost forget you’re doing it! It’s a wonderful, mindful way of exercising.

    Nordic walking with Katie is one of the highlights of my week, I never imagined so many beautiful walks were right here on our doorstep! An hour embracing the fitness challenge with gentle reminders on technique is a really fun way to enjoy our lovely countryside – always goes too quickly!
