Nordic Walking With Elaine Kearns in Bedfordshire - Timberland Trail - 22nd June 2013
""Nordic with Elaine is a safe, healthy and a fun way to get and keep fit, meet new friends and enjoy nature. Can't beat it!"
Pat Crowe
“Hi, I have been Nordic walking for around 8 months now, started because i like walking and wanted to try something a little bit different, must say I'm glad I did, great walks with great people at a pace that suits you, what more could you want? As an added bonus getting healthier and fitter every week. Love it! If you ever wanted to do an activity which is fun and good for you, give it a go, why not?!”
Derek O'Dell
“In September 2013 I had a heart attack. The cardiac people at Bedford Hospital were brilliant, and a couple of “stents” later I was home. I went onto an excellent rehab course, provided through the hospital which included education and exercise for cardiac patients. After the rehab the advice is to exercise well, and walking is recommended as one of the best exercises. I would walk as often as possible. We are so lucky to have nice footpaths and woods locally. I noticed Elaine’s poster at the Hub in Ampthill Park, and thought that Nordic Walking may be a good enhancement to my normal plodding. It was clear from the outset, on Elaine’s free trial, it was indeed ideal for me, perfect exercise for my condition. When I exercise, I use a heart monitor and the exercise profile is perfect, enabling gentle warm up, cool down and more intense exercise in the middle. This is all under my control, which you can’t easily do swimming or cycling. My wife Barbara also found it is ideal for her, having arthritis in her knees. The poles reduce pressure on the legs and improve posture. So we signed up. Elaine’s lessons made sure we had the right technique, and now thanks to Elaine’s brilliant instruction, we find Nordic walking better than normal walking. The walks with Elaine’s group are always fun, encouraging and she takes a genuine interest in our progress and wellbeing. What’s more there are lots of friendly people, not to mention, fresh air, and brilliant scenery.”
