Diane Sumner WALX GUIDE

I have always loved walking and when I worked full time most of my weekends and holidays would involve some form of outdoor activity, be it bagging Wainwright fells in the Lake District or completing long distance walks in the UK and abroad.

When I retired 3 years ago I spotted an advert for Kerley’s nordic walking in Delamere forest and decided to give it a go. What a revelation!  I had no idea how much more efficient walking with poles could be and how good a workout you could get as a result. I also found that with the wide variety of classes that Kerley and her Walx Guides offered it was easy to find a friendly class that suited my current fitness level.  I have been hooked ever since.

As a Walx Guide I hope to pass on my passion for walking and the many benefits of nordic walking in particular.
