Walk Description:


Walk well, experience poles for improved posture and total body walking, and perform balance and strength exercises in the woods. These FREE 75mins sessions give you a clear idea of what WALX is all about!

Based from The Spaniards Inn and exploring the quieter areas of Hampstead Heath, WALX Hampstead offers a weekly programme of Nordic and fitness walking classes for health, fitness, strength, improved posture and sociality.

Our programme includes:

Feel the improved posture and upper body exercise provided with effective pole use French WALX - a fitness walk, with or without poles, but in French. Aimed at those who would like to improve or just practice their conversational French while getting fitter Explorer WALX - longer social walks further afield, exploring walking routes in and around London, and walking holidays. Next year, we're off to Puglia!

With such a range, this WALX Discovery Session gives you a little taste of each so you can determine which class types appeal to you.
