“Nordic Walking has given me a new lease of life! I have ME, fibromyalgia and arthritis and found regular physical exercise only exacerbated my pain and fatigue. At my first Nordic Walking session at Kedleston Park I could barely limp around the car park – however, I loved being able to stand up straight with the poles and didn’t want to give them back! Twelve months on I use my poles everywhere, inside and outside the house, and I couldn’t manage without them. It’s been amazing to get back out into the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. For the first time, since becoming disabled, I really feel that I have my life back. Thanks to Sam’s encouragement and support I took part in a charity walk and also got through the long harsh winter without being trapped or isolated by the cold. Sam is a very special person and instructor and it is a privilege to be part of her Nordic Walking family. My ambition is to become fit enough to train with Sam at her Thursday “Nordic Boot Camp” class! Train with Core Concept and you won’t regret it. Thank you Sam for your professionalism, kindness and support.”
