Coast & Countryside Nordic Walking


10:00 - 12.00pm


Enjoy Devon, socialise and keep fit and well with my programme of Tuesday walks across the South Devon area. Each walk is selected for it's suitability for Nordic walking, its accessibility and parking, along with it's vicinity to good cafes or pubs for refreshments afterwards. Many great places allow us to park in their car parks in return for us visiting afterwards. 

To attend the walks you just need to be able to walk 4- 6 miles.  


Walks are paced to the slowest member of the group and those who wish to walk faster can go ahead and circulate back to re-join the group.

Please note to participate in the walks you need to have had some Nordic Walking training with me or another Nordic walking UK instructor. To book some training please go to bookings 

Hope you can join us soon and explore Devon and keep fit and socialise at the same time. Please e mail to receive a copy of a typical programme. Best wishes. 


One to One Walking & Smovey Vibroswing

one hour sessions by appointment


If you are new or returning to exercise and feel you would prefer to have some one to one 'walking for fitness' sessions, where we can walk with or without poles and do some strength and resistance training please do get in touch.


A few bespoke sessions incorporating various elements of fitness such as cardio vascular fitness, strength, flexibility and balance may be just what you need to re build the confidence or increase motivation to get out doing regular exercise and walking again.  

For example; in addition to walking, use can also be made of the Nordic Gymstick (bands that attach to the Walking Poles) light hand weights or the Smovey Vibroswing.

(The Smovey is dynamic fitness product that is like no other. It provides a dynamic upper body workout that gets you fit while helping to burn more calories and stabilize your back and spine. Each Smovey ring weighs 1 lb and includes four metal balls that run freely inside the hollow plastic tubes. Once swinging the centrifugal forces make the product feel heavier at various points of the movement. Read more here  https://www.smoveyhealth.com/ )
