Welcome to Nordic Fitness Ireland

Passionate About Walking for Fitness & Wellbeing

Nordic Fitness Ireland have been providing Nordic walking services for more than 6 years. Instructors Joanne & Tony have taught over 800 people this amazing activity but now, after much contemplation, we have made the decision to no longer actively market our Nordic walking services. This decision has not come lightly. We have spent considerable time weighing the pros and cons, evaluating our priorities, and considering the future of our business. 

Ultimately, we have decided to follow our instincts and embark on a new chapter in our lives. In the coming months, we will be dedicating more time to travelling in our demountable camper, cherishing moments with our loved ones and reconnecting with friends and family across the world, including our new Grandchild due in September. 

This decision aligns with our personal values and aspirations, and while it marks the end of one journey, it signals the beginning of another. We want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who has supported Nordic Fitness Ireland over the years. 

Your enthusiasm, loyalty, and passion for Nordic walking have been truly inspiring, and we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have been part of your fitness journey. 

Although we will no longer be actively marketing our services, we want you to know that we will always be available for advice or to show anyone how to Nordic walk. That is the part of the job we love the most. Our passion for Nordic walking is still undiminished, and we are more than happy to share our knowledge and expertise with anyone who seeks it. 

If you are interested in following our travel adventures, you can find us on social media @onevanandourdog. We will be sharing snapshots of our journey, along with the breathtaking landscapes and experiences we meet along the way. 

When we started Nordic Fitness Ireland, it was only ever meant to be a hobby. We never expected the business to grow as much as it did. Unfortunately, the demands of the business have increasingly taken us away from the things we enjoy most – walks with Bali dog, training & taking part in events, swimming, cycling, spontaneous travels, knitting, and reading. 

As we embark on this new adventure, we carry with us fond memories of the moments shared with you all. While our paths may diverge, know that you will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you once again for your unwavering support and encouragement. We wish you all the very best in your fitness pursuits and beyond. 


The Nordic Fitness Ireland website will remain active for a few months just while we set up our new travel  blog https://onevanandourdog.cowhich will continue to have hints and tips for Nordic walking

With warm regards, 

Joanne & Tony
