Exercise Anywhere Conference 2012

The buzz from the Exercise Anywhere 12 event is still reverberating across the UK with over 200 Instructors and project leaders inspired to make the most of new partnerships & initiatives.

Delegates listened to spellbinding keynote speakers, Robin Gargrave, Bob Laventure and Dr John Searle OBE and made the most of workshops, practical demos and  educational sessions.

Ordnance survey created special maps to mark the Making Walking work conference.

Ordnance Survey were there demonstrating their fantastic GET A MAP service and offering a massive 25% discount to attendees who also made use of the specially made EXERCISE ANYWHERE maps when Tutor Nicky Parsons, took them on a ‘WALK ON THE WILD SIDE’. This fun session demonstrated just how many risks there could be on even an urban walk and the NWUK Tutor team were on hand with tips as to how to deal with every incident (including a snake bite!)

Making Walking work event 2012

We wanted to inspire and it would seem we did……. here are just a few of the comments that have been pouring in

“Just to say what a fantastic, fun, inspirational and educational few days we had. A big thank you to you and all your team members who made it a conference to remember. Many Thanks,” Mike Horton

” A huge thankyou to Gill, Mike,Martin, the rest of the team, & all the inspirational speakers. I am still buzzing from the last 2 days at the NWUK conference I have been to all 3 conferences & it has been fascinating to see how NWUK has evolved & gathered momentum. Its great to be part of it! Can’t wait for the walk to run
workshop now….”. Hilary

Other key moments were:-

  •  The announcement of the new partnership with TECHNOGYM the innovative wellness company who have teamed up with NWUK in order to provide a way for participants to monitor their activity levels with the NEW wellness key. This innovative device monitors activity and allows the wearer to upload their progress to the WELLNESS CLOUD where they will find information and even encouragement from their local Instructor – read more
  • The launch of the SAFETY 24 scheme which will now mean every holder of the New FREEDOM CARD (formerly the competence card) will be able to have a code that would provide the emergency services with details of their medical history and next of kin. This simple idea means no more data protection worries for Instructors as the dat is held on a secure server that can only be accessed by professional emergency services…..brilliant eh? read more
