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.
