Main Instructor:

WALX Leicester East

Walk Description:

Gentle WALX that incorporate balance work, flexibility and strength exercises and maybe a bit of tai chi or relaxation too. Great for those who are getting back into exercise, have a health condition or simply want to move well and be fit for life! Our wellbeing Instructors are qualified to deliver WALX for all levels so it’s never too late to take that first step.

Meet: Melton Country Park, near the Visitor Centre Cafe. Free parking is available and the No.15 Centrebus stops near the junction of Wymondham Way and Longate Road.

Pace: Steady, to suit the group. Walking poles are NOT required to enjoy this activity. If you would like to use them, we ask that you join our Power of Poles training to learn the correct Nordic Walking technique and maximise the benefits of using poles.

Terrain: This is a mixed terrain venue with paths of various different composition as well as undefined walkways across grassland. These are muddy at this time of year. 

Clothing: Please come prepared for the weather on the day. We recommend you wear layers to keep you warm, and avoid wearing jeans as these are cold if they get wet, and can chafe. A waterproof outer layer is preferred in wet weather. Trainers or boots with a good grip are the best footwear. The grass may be wet and the paths muddy. Pumps, wellies and slip-on shoes are not suitable. 

Elevation: Slight inclines.
