Walk Description:

Enjoyed walking over lockdown, want to progress this more?

Come and learn how to turn walking into a total body exercise with poles. Get more from walking in your own time or join our regular fitness walking classes. In line with Government guidance and our own updated risk assessment protocols, we can now offer the beginners' Power of Poles workshop for up to 6 participants at a time.  The session also includes a FREE walk of your choice to be taken after your course preferably as soon as possible to practice what you have learned. You will be given a voucher code to be used within 6 weeks.

Poles are provided for the course - poles are cleaned thoroughly between uses.

Once you've completed the Power of Poles, you will be entitled to WALX membership and will be entitled to the members' prices on the Nordic Walking UK store - ask for details.

We recommended that you DONT wear stiff hiking boots as these restrict your walking with poles - walking shoes or trainers are preferred. Wear outdoor clothing and esnure you have suitable waterproofs if the forecast is for rain. We will only cancel if the weather makes lessons too difficult.

Please ensure you bring a small backpack/bumbag with water and a snack if required.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch - just click on Contact above for mobile phone and email details.

The session takes place at Avebury Village. The meeting place is just opposite the Henge Shop in the high street by the village car park. If possible park in the NT car park (parking charges apply) and walk up or you can find a few spaces in the high street.

If you feel unwell between booking your class and joining us, we ask that you err on the side of caution and cancel your booking. You will be recredited to book another date or a refund can be issued.
