The Purple Army is Growing in Saddleworth!


Nordic Walking is taking the U.K. by storm! After some primetime T.V. publicity and Theresa May being pictured walking with poles (sshh, don’t tell her, she WASN’T Nordic Walking!) many people are investigating this relatively new form of exercise to land on British shores. Originally used by off-season skiers in Scandinavia, the fitness and health benefits have become well-documented and Nordic Walking UK is creating a network of groups and instructors nationwide to make this…the gym without walls! (and boring equipment that make time tick soooo slowly)


Caroline Fisher – known as Purple Caroline due to the signature colour of NWUK- explains why it’s worth taking up and also about her new partnership with Saddleworth Outdoor – the go-to store for anyone looking to get outdoors round Saddleworth:


‘It really is the best mixture of exercise, outdoor feelgood factor and sociability. It said a lot to me that at Christmas time, when most gyms are empty, my walks were busier than ever. People enjoy it! So much so that it’s easy to forget you’re exercising! But you are…and you can achieve whatever you want Nordic walking…whether it is to gently improve your sense of well-being or build on a good base fitness level and take part in a Nordic walking marathon! There really is something to suit everyone. We are particularly lucky in living in Saddleworth which does have some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in my view. I’ve been keen to get a retail base here for a while and when I saw that Steven was expanding his already well-stocked shop, it seemed the right venue to have the first Nordic Walking UK Pro Store in the country. So now, alongside the great range of outdoor wear, running kit and base layers, Steven has a stock of NWUK merchandise ranging from headbands to water bottles, poles to polo shirts and caps to multi-terrain paws. He is also stocking more general items in purple than before!’


To tie all this together, there will be regular Come and Learn about Nordic Walking days at Saddleworth Outdoor – the next one is on March 12th. You can talk to Caroline and her team and even have a mini- taster session to see what these poles can really do for you. Added to this, Saddleworth Outdoor is in its final stage of expansion. There is a garden being created to the rear of the store for walkers (Nordic or not!) to relax before or after their walks, toilet facilities and tea and coffee. This will be opening soon.
