Jo is an accredited NWUK Instructor and Brand Ambassador. She delivers taster sessions, Power of Poles Introduction Lessons and Power of Poles 2, as well as leading regular walks. Jo started Nordic walking in April 2015 and has been walking several times a week since then (with the occasional break for holidays!).
Jo says: ‘To be honest, I didn’t know much about Nordic walking at all when I signed up for a taster. I was really attracted to the thought of getting fit, in the outdoors, and with other people wanting to do the same. And I haven’t looked back! I noticed very early on how my posture and muscle tone (especially in my arms) started to improve. It’s hard to imagine life without Nordic walking now, and I get a real lift from seeing other people discovering its benefits – and having a good laugh along the way.’
Jo strongly believes that people learn best when they are helped to feel at ease, and once people have learned the technique her aim is help them towards their health and fitness goals in a fun and social environment. ‘I love what I do’, says Jo. ‘I just want other people to love it too!’
