I'd Rather Be Outdoors

Welcome to I'd Rather Be Outdoors

We offer Nordic Walks in and around Stockport, Marple, High Peak and in Lyme Park.

Our Regular Walks take place on a variety of circular routes around the area, using a mixture of streets, canals, parks, woodland, riverside paths, and bridlepaths. It's sometimes surprising how quickly you can go from urban to semi rural, I love getting to show off walks or a surprising viewpoint off the beaten track that otherwise may have stayed hidden.

It's great to share that appreciation with others who enjoy getting outdoors for it's mood boosting effects, confidence, chatter, and fitness too.

Our walks are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.   

Sometimes we go further afield for our Longer Walks, Peak District, Macclesfield Forest etc


?Here is a little bit about me. I’ve had a love for the outdoors and history for as long as I can remember. I love walking my dogs and being out and about, be that in parks, woodlands, hills or cities. Anywhere as long as it’s outside! I’m into running, walking, cycling, martial arts, all types of fitness and of course Nordic Walking I like encouraging people to try new things and keep active or challenge themselves and I think Nordic Walking is ideal for this.

I am a qualified Personal Trainer, Run Leader, Nordic Walking Instructor and CaniCross Instructor,  I also have completed my Exercise Referral Training and have a separate qualification in Senior Fitness too.

I'd love to be able to help you get Outdoors too.
