What: Guided Nordic Walking Tour by Pius Murray
Nordic Walking is a great way to stay fit and healthy. All walking is a great way to improve or maintain your overall health. Just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power and endurance. It can also reduce your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some cancers. Simply add Nordic Walking poles for increased benefit.
About Nordic Fitness Ireland
Established in 2018, Nordic Fitness Ireland is based at Burkedale House in Dysert O’Dea, Corofin, Co. Clare, Ireland. Burkedale House has been the family home of the Burkes for 20 years. Tony is originally from Dublin and Joanne from Oxford. They met over 30 years ago in London. They wanted their children, Naomi & Hamish to be educated in Ireland hence the move to Clare in 2001.
When the children flew the nest and went to university in the UK, they decided to head back to the UK too. They wanted other people to enjoy the spectacular views from the house and relax in its comfortable surroundings and they opened their doors for people to stay via Airbnb.
On returning to Ireland in 2017 following retirement from a long nursing career, Joanne expanded the accommodation business with the addition of a Traditional Irish Cottage and established Nordic fitness Ireland after training as fitness walking instructor. As the numbers grew Tony joined Joanne and trained as an instructor but continued to work as an IT consultant.
During the pandemic of 2020 both worked full time on the business and have developed their new Walks for All programme.
