This video is probably what convinced me to take a leap of faith and try Nordic walking.
Birgit Wilde is originally from Germany. She lived in North Cheshire, England, for 16 years before returning to Düsseldorf. She’s an instructor with the International Nordic Walking Association.
I liked how plain and simple she just presented everything, with a great sense of humour and doesn’t take it all too seriously.
If you’re trying to explain Nordic walking to a friend, you could do worse than send them a link to this video, I’d think.
