Martin wanted to beat his pre-Diabetes II diagnosis from his doctor. Although he played racquet sports and walked with friends he wanted to add in something that was more of a cardio workout. His doctor suggested Nordic Walking.
He did our award-winning Fast Track beginner course in April 2019 and really has taken to Nordic walking like a duck to water! He qualified as a WALX guide in October 2020, although he had been supporting a few walks through the year.
2021 will see him take on a few challenges including the 136 mile Forces March and Reading Half Marathon.
