Mike Neary

I have always kept myself fit, spending 22 years in the military gave me a love of the outdoors. I can’t think of anything better than Nordic Walking with a group of people who have the same love of the outdoors.

I found Nordic Walking by accident, but loved it immediately. After my taster session I purchased a set of poles and progressed from there, walking on average around 30 to 40 miles a week.

It’s a whole-body exercise everyone can do, there’s no limitation on age or fitness level. Nordic Walking is now my main fitness strategy, after 42 years of being a cyclist but no longer allowed to ride, Nordic Walking is my new passion.
