I run Hamish’s Nordic Academy, providing Orienteering, Nordic Walking, Personal Training and Fitness Sessions from Burnley to Manchester. Through these sessions, I help people from 6 to 70+ years’ old to improve their fitness levels, fitness skills, movement and balance.
I’m motivated by what I do – I truly believe in it and how it helps people achieve what they want. I also enjoy working outside, helping people achieve great things, and not pottering around at home. I have a wide range of clients some of whom have disabilities. I run Nordic Waking sessions for people with Parkinson’s and brain damage. Nordic Walking works very well for these groups. Recently one of my new Parkinson’s clients who had struggled to walk 100 metres went on holiday with a pair of my Nordic Walking poles. He ended up walking over a mile with his wife following behind, pushing an empty mobility scooter. He is over the moon with the result!
