Adele Howlett – Instructor
Hi, I am Adele and I have been a Fitness Instructor since 2003 focusing on fitness & weight management classes in and around South Bucks. In 2009 I suffered injury to my knee and foot, which subsequently needed surgery. I began to search for other forms of exercise, discovered Nordic Walking and became totally hooked. Using the poles really helped stability, keeping pressure off the joints whilst maintaining posture which was essential for a good recovery.
In 2014 I started Harmony Nordic Walking and offer a variety of walks for different abilities based around High Wycombe in the fabulous Chilterns. I have a trained, professional team to support me sharing my passion to exercise outdoors, improving fitness, health and well being, all whilst having fun. So why not come and join us? and discover the benefits first hand.
Helen Speakman – Instructor
I started Nordic walking about two years ago after completing one of Adele’s early ” Learn to” classes and have walked weekly ever since, having completely fallen in love with the activity. I really enjoy being outdoors in the glorious Buckinghamshire countryside, have made some wonderful friends, lost weight, reduced my blood pressure to the point of coming off medication and feel fitter, younger and more confident as a result. I attended the Nordic Walking Festival 2015 in Seville and that fabulous experience was the impetus to decide to train as an Instructor. I completed my training recently and will be working alongside Adele taking classes and leading walks for Harmony Nordic Walking and I look forward to sharing my passion with you soon.
Lin Rudd – Walk Leader
Marion Harvey – Walk Leader
I’d attended aerobic classes run by Adele for many years and when she announced she was offering Nordic Walking classes I joined one of her first sessions and haven’t looked back. In summer 2015 the opportunity came up to train as a Walk Leader so I took it and since then have enjoyed being able to lead groups on behalf of Adele across the Wycombe area. Exercising outdoors in a group using Nordic poles gives a total body workout, burns calories, improves stamina and is great fun. Add to this being outdoors and witnessing the changing seasons of our beautiful Chiltern countryside what is there not to love? Bad weather? …. No, just the wrong clothing!”
Ruth Moir – Walk Leader
Over the years I have tried various different forms of exercise class; dance, step, aerobics – do any of you remember “feel the burn”? (Yes, I know that dates me). I’ve also had ponies, horses and dogs at various times over the last 40 years so I’ve been fairly fit at times. Sadly the equines are no longer and the present dog is at the age when walking is not her highest priority. So when Adele mentioned that she was running Nordic Walking classes I thought “the all-over body work out in the great outdoors, what more could you want?” I’ve always enjoyed walking so I began Nordic Walking with Adele in August 2014 and found it to be a lot of fun, but with definite health benefits. I am certainly a lot fitter than I have been for a long time. I became a walk leader for Adele in July 2015. I have met a lot of lovely new people, all enjoying the benefits of Nordic Walking in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside and the enthusiasm of my fellow walkers makes my role as a walk leader a real pleasure.
