COVID UPDATE: We are now allowed to operate with no restrictions but continue to be COVID secure by ensuring our walks aren’t over crowded and keeping aware of giving other people space when we meet out and about.
Nordic walking in and around Hampshire and Dorset – from Brockenhurst, Sway, Beaulieu, Burley, Lymington, Lyndhurst , Ashurst and Totton to Milford, Highcliffe, Barton and Christchurch. We are a friendly group of Nordic Walkers who love to make the most of these beautiful surroundings in which we live.

Sally says “Suzanne is a professional teacher and guide who manages to make exercise enjoyable! A walk I would otherwise find demanding becomes exhilarating, and the chance to explore new areas of the Forest in a relaxed, social environment is a very special experience”.
Suzanne moved to the New Forest with husband Trevor in 2010 and is passionate about the area with all its beautiful walks. Once she discovered the benefits of Nordic Walking, she trained to become an instructor and has established a very successful and social club where people can come along and share her passion.
She is also trained to deliver MSE (Muscle Strength and Endurance) exercise programmes which are often added at the end of a workout walk.
Sue Gravells is a part-time fully accredited Nordic Walking UK instructor delivering walks in the New Forest East area, mostly around Ashurst, Colbury, Beaulieu and Lyndhurst. Sue joined us through lockdown as she adapted to her new working lifestyle at home and is a welcome addition to the team, particularly with her enthusiasm for supporting others to increase their fitness and her love of the Forest. Sue has lived with her husband in Ashurst for over twenty years and as a mountain bike enthusiast, as well as a professional personal development coach who walks with her coaching clients, she knows her way around the trails – and the cafes!
Trevor qualified as a NWUK Instructor in 2014 and loves nothing better than helping people get the most from Nordic Walking. His in depth research of the benefits of correct Nordic Walking technique have helped him to help our members get the most out of this fantastic activity.
He is also trained as an Isometric Instructor and is able to offer training in this highly efficient muscle building technique.
From his many years as a business coach, Trevor has great empathy with people from all backgrounds and ages.
