Nordic walking makes me feel great!

My work is indoors with hours of standing over a treatment couch or sitting to do admin but

I’ve always loved being active outdoors in the fresh air surrounded by nature and best of all sharing the experience with other people. I love to find an excuse to get moving and to laugh!  For me Nordic walking is deeply therapeutic, it’s great fun as well as a full body workout!

If I don’t exercise properly my work gives me upper back and neck muscle stiffness and headaches.  Nordic Walking releases the muscle tensions, relieves my spinal stiffness and stops my headaches, it really helps me to keep physically and mentally well, enabling me to enjoy a busy life.

For 30 years I’ve enjoyed recreational and competitive Mountain biking and I used to run regularly for general fitness and recently I have had to replace running with Nordic walking because  Nordic walking gives me a pain free, low impact alternative to running that leaves me feeling energized and zingy!

As a sports and spinal  musculoskeletal physiotherapist I reeducate  movement patterns to relieve pain and improve function and  performance in sports, Nordic walking helps  to reconnect the deepest muscles, those needed for balanced movements so it’s fantastic for rehabilitation and perfectly complements my treatment approach.


Richard Menko – Walk Leader


Keen to be outside in all weathers, Richard leads many of the walks for NDNW. He has specially designed walks to suit the needs of our ever growing club, be it ‘gentle walks’ with no hills, ‘brisk’ 1 hour walks for those that want a quick fix, and a much longer (3 hour +) weekend walk that can be strenuous !
