Leading Nordic Walking expert and Master Coach Gottfried Kürmer has joined ANWA (American Nordic Walking Association) as the Director of Education & Technical Development. Having initially trained in Finland in the early days of Nordic Walking there, Gottfried became one of the original Nordic Walking Master Trainers in Austria.
