Jon Wood – Qualified Instructor

A keen sportsman in his younger days Jon has also completed 35 years pounding the keyboard as an IT professional.

Jon began Nordic Walking 3 years ago and found the structure, sociability and low impact exercise a rewarding way to keep fit. He is a qualified Nordic Walking UK instructor and relishes having Cannock Chase and its surrounding areas as his place of work.

Outdoor exercise is so rewarding. We have a connection to people, we want to help each other and share in one another’s successes, and this is the fundamental reason that Chase Nordic Walking exists. This is where we connect to each other as well as nature and our surroundings, this is when we exercise the mind and stress truly subsides. Your inspiration will come from each other and the camaraderie will help you achieve more than you ever thought possible.

Exercising outside is a completely addictive experience, which is rarely hampered by the weather and there is a certain increased sense of achievement when you return from a session in the snow and rain.  Our office, your playground will change you in many ways and we guarantee they will all be positive whilst being fun and enjoyable.
