Walx & Friends was born out of Arrow and Nordic Walking, which was established in January 2016 after Kathrin Foster became an accredited Nordic Walking UK Instructor. Kathrin doesn’t just want to get people walking in the great outdoors or teach Nordic walking; she wants to change people’s lives by breaking down barriers to exercise and deliver results according to personal fitness and weight loss goals. Arrow and Arden Nordic Walking caters for all ages and level of fitness.
Walking in a group is great fun and benefit in many areas of your life. Kathrin will not only ensure that you reach your health and wellbeing goals but that you have a fantastic time doing it! Our group thrives on laughter and on pole power, we all have made life long friends whilst exploring the local area and improving our health as well as fitness.
After having been a couch potato all my life my sister introduced to Nordic Walking in 2015. I was stunned to find how enjoyable walking with friends in the great outdoors was.
I immediately knew I found the ideal exercise for me and was keen to find a local group. I saw a new sociable site to becoming fit by being in our beautiful countryside, the opposite to being enclosed by four walls of a stuffy gym. When unable to find a group to join in, I decided to form my own group and train with Nordic Walking UK by completing their instructor training in 2015. After receiving my accreditation, I started offering Learn Nordic Walking classes in January 2016 and regular walks. Keen to offer more to South Warwickshire and Worcestershire residents from all ages and fitness backgrounds I completed the Advanced Exercise Anywhere Diploma in Fitness, Wellbeing & Nordic Walking in May 2016 which enables me to deliver the award winning Nordic Walking UK FREEDOM 4 gear programme. I have since continued my training and developement in the field of Body, Mind & Skin and completed the Power of Poles training and continue to work on myself to give to those that touch my life.
As a mum of three I really understand the many barriers of becoming more active whilst balancing work and family commitments. I love to share my passion for Nordic Walking, health and wellbeing whilst helping people to achieve their goals. Nothing makes me happier than to see someone transform their life. So join our walx with or without poles, everyone is very welcome!
