Faye Broder

Hello, I am Faye and although a relative newcomer to Nordic Walking I really have felt inspired to become an Instructor in order to share my joy and passion in this exercise.

People discover Nordic Walking for different reasons, as an owner of a high energy Boxer Dog, Ruby. I was spending a few hours a day walking and I was looking to enhance fitness without joining a gym and this fitted in perfectly to my lifestyle at the time. Often exploring parks and hills I could Nordic Walk as part of my normal routine.

I returned from living abroad in Asia in 2015 and when you experience a couple of years without seasons it makes you appreciate what North Yorkshire and the UK has to offer, with weather and beautiful landscapes.

If I was to describe how I felt once I had discovered and exercised by Nordic Walking I would say ‘Hygge for the Heart’ and to use the description of Hygge from the dictionary ‘comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment’.

But why do I want to inspire you, exercise should be for everyone young and old. We only have one life and we should be live it for as long as possible. In the happiest, healthiest way.
