Altitude, Adventure & Nordic Walking Expeditions with Steve Ellis

In this episode, I am speaking to British Nordic Walking National Trainer, Steve Ellis, who is based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.  Steve combines his passion and experience for fitness and the outdoors in delivering Nordic Walking, Personal Training and ‘Guided Mountain/Hill Days and Skills Courses’ for those who look to ‘get fit & stay fit‘ in the great outdoors.  The founder and co-owner of Gemini Outdoor Adventure Ltd, Steve has been trekking in the mountains of the UK and Europe for the last 30 years, and as such holds both the ‘Mountain Leader’ and ‘International Mountain Leader’ qualifications.  He is passionate about sharing the outdoors with a wider audience of adults and children. Steve also leads UK treks on the Cotswold Way, Brecon Beacons, Black Mountain, Lake District, Peak District, Cairngorms and Snowdonia; as well as overseas trekking holidays to remote places such as the Garfagnana in Tuscany, Ariege in the French Pyrenees, Mt Toubkal, Atlas Mountains in Morocco and the summit of Africa, Kilimanjaro. When not undertaking these trips, Steve is busy planning future adventures.  Today, Steve joins me to talk about Nordic Walking at altitude and some of his expeditions both home and abroad.To contact Steve, or find out more about his trips, please visit his website.  If you would like to find a Mountain Leader, please visit the British Association of International Mountain Leaders site.Find An Instructorhttps://britishnordicwalking.org.uk/apps/store-locatorIf you have enjoyed this podcast, I would be very grateful if you could show your support by buying me a coffee!  This enables me to continue producing these podcasts, as it will go towards covering the server and podcast platform licenses.   Not only is Nordic Walking a whole body workout, but it is also one of the safest and most sociable way to exercise.  Classes always finish up in a cafe enjoying a coffee together.
