Martin Christie

Martin brought Nordic walking to this country in 2003, forming Nordic Walking UK and creating the education programmes for over 5000 instructors nationwide. He introduced Nordic walking to Hampstead in 2010 and continues to deliver classes, train instructors and develop fitness walking programmes for national roll out.

The next step on this journey is the development of WALX – reaching those who prefer to exercise outdoors, whether for fitness, health – physical and mental – or rehab … with Nordic walking poles or without.

Martin owns, manages and delivers classes for WALXhampstead. He has surrounded himself with a fantastic team of instructors and aims for WALXhampstead to be the premier fitness walking club in the country.
