JOIN IN OUR OLYMPIC CHALLENGE
Olympic year is finally here and the whole Nation is gearing up for a sporting spectacle that will be remembered for years to come.
Lots of organisations and companies are pledging to help encourage people to be more active as part of the Olympic legacy and NWUK are involved in a number of these schemes. We thought it would be great for our Instructors to join in and were delighted when we heard that Sue Hayes an Instructor from ESSEX has got right into the spirit. Sue has pledged to offer 2012 tasters out this year….we had better get back to work with our press releases so we can help you achieve this Sue! – Good Luck!
This spurred us on to create a 2012 themed Nordic walking challenge that we can all join in – read on to find out more
