I completed the 4 week Learn to Nordic Walking course and obtained my Freedom Pass with Susan. I have since been on many enjoyable walls and explored many different places of interest. My fitness levels have definitely improved and although I am a slow walker I do think I now walk faster with poles than without. Susan was an excellent instructor, patient, and knowledgeable about techniques and the areas we visited. I enjoy the camaraderie and social aspect of walking within a group and being outside in the fresh air. Really pleased I took the plunge!
