Frank Costa – Qualified Walk Leader

Having achieved a ‘Walking for Health’ leader in 2019 which includes walks that are free, sociable and easily accessible for most people, I then considered Nordic Walking as a great opportunity for improving my health as the poles help with stability and reduces pressure on the joints.

Having learned Nordic Walking, I realised that many people would improve their health, like myself and being in a forest is good for your mental health also. So regular walks can increase your life expectancy, improve the strength of our muscles and bones, reduce our blood pressure and increases our level of ‘good’ cholesterol.
