June Holden – WALX Coach for WALX Derwent and Dales who started Nordic Walking in 2009 playing a very active role in the business and is always motivated to deliver fun and active sessions.
Initially completed her Walk Leader training and then became an Instructor in 2016 and is now a coach. June has always loved sport. This forms a major part of her life, having played competitive tennis and enjoyed many years of horse-riding, training, cycling. It was a natural progression to continue to keep active in a very sociable and fun way. All Nordic Walking activities have improved June’s overall fitness, taken an impact off her joints and given her a sport that she can continue as the years’ progress. June is a great ambassador for Nordic Walking and loves motivating others to start walking, improve their overall fitness and mental wellbeing as a result. She has travelled to many European Countries and around the UK to Nordic Walk whilst supporting the Rustic Weekender and the Purbeck Nordic Walking Festival in Dorset.
June delivers regular WALX and provides Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing classes both outdoors and on zoom. June loves to support Sam in the marketing of all our WALX activities and spread the word about the benefits.
June is welcoming and inclusive and has had a great impact on the business since she started in 2009.
