My Walk it Off NI story

About me

Hi, I’m Nikki of WalkitoffNI. 

WalkitoffNI was born from a concentration of life experiences.   I realise the huge positive impact on well-being of just getting out the door and the life-changing and sustainable exercise that is walking.

I studied at UCLAN, have gained qualifications in Maths, 3 Languages, Business Administration and Economics, Nutrition, and Physiology and Anatomy.

Walking is a release and a relaxation, a constant connection to reality and peace.  Walking is an eco-friendly and low-impact but high-return activity proven to improve head health, heart health, fitness, bone-density, vitamin D and overall wellbeing. Walking is the way forward!

After a serious knee injury and post physio sessions, walking was the thing that reduced the frustration when I couldn’t manage my usual physical activities. My interest was sparked so I started researching it’s effects and its power to positively affect both physical and mental well-being. The knee is now back to full mobility and extension in spite of the surgeon’s dark mumblings and soon afterwards, the idea for WalkItOffNI was born!

In my lifetime, I have experienced many things, Au Pairing in France, Sailing from Iceland to Ireland, Hiking the Inca trail, the crazy life of an Underwriter in Lloyd’s of London in the ‘90s, the precious world of Film and Television, life in the surreal office of Ireland’s first Ibiza style superclub, life as a mother.

I’ve travelled half-way across the world, managed property, designed costumes for 70 odd performers, practiced yoga, pilates, Indian head massage, running, circus: performed in front of hundreds of people, become a volunteer for Belfast Community Circus, 90th Belfast Scouts and Northern Ireland’s first Quarry Sculpture Park, laughed a lot, cried enough.

WalkItOffNI, came out of all of this.

The walkitoffni story


In September 2019 I had an idea about Walks with destinations. Who doesn’t love a walk with a cuppa and a bun at the destination.
