Karen is a very knowledgeable and inspiring coach. She challenges us to push our personal boundaries. As a result we feel more accomplished and achieve greater fitness. She is very aware of individual limitations and will tailor exercises to suit one’s needs. Although Karen ensures that we are working to our potential, she also makes the workouts enjoyable.
I have power walked with Karen for over ten years, the last seven with her as coach. She is one of the most encouraging and compassionate people I have ever met. She inspires walkers of all levels to do their best. Anyone, and everyone, would benefit from her guidance…..I know that I have. I was drawn to power walking over a decade ago, as a way of maintaining fitness, with less physical wear and tear than running, and I’m here to stay. Just try it!
Gill took me through the basics of race walking patiently and thoroughly. She was keen to stress that I must go at my own pace and explained and demonstrated, in a way that was easy to understand, the physics of the sport. She is an inspiration.
Walking Fit truly brings out the best in people and has opened my eyes up to a whole new world. The coaching is always motivating and brings together an inspiring and motivating group of people. Most important, my fitness level has improved and I feel fantastic!
I’ve been walking with Karen and Gillian for more than five years:
- I’m continually impressed with their ease in coaching a group of individuals at various levels of fitness and ability.
- All the WalkingFit coaches share the same infectious spirit of enthusiasm and camaraderie.
- They’re always coming up with fresh ideas to make the classes both fun and challenging.
