WHY NOT LEARN SOMETHING NEW THIS YEAR? GET FIT? FEEL FANTASTIC? EXPLORE NEW PLACES? MEET NEW PEOPLE...
Nordic Walking is a fabulous exercise for people of all ages and abilities. It burns more calories than ordinary walking, uses 90% of your muscles, works the whole body and is sociable too. The poles (very different to trekking poles) enable you to feel well balanced and light on your feet - if you learn how to use them properly. And finally, it is green exercise and we all know how good we feel when we are outdoors - even in the rain! Join us, and WALK THIS WAY....
The course covers the following:
The fundamentals of Nordic Walking technique. Gaining forward propulsion from the poles by engaging the correct upper body muscles, understanding correct gait and co-ordination.
Mastering handgrip and use of the pole straps in order to develop technique. Adapting the body position and pole angles for walking up and down hills.
Adding more speed through improved technique, understanding how your body reacts to exercise and learning how to stay within your comfort zone.
Price: £35 - this includes NOT ONLY the practical training session BUT ALSO a POLE WORKSHOP, use of poles AND FREE WALK.
It is a techniques course but you can take regular breaks when you need to.
Meet in the Whitlingham BARN CAFE car park. Please be aware that you must drive PAST this large barn as you come down Whitlingham Lane and then turn in left. It is not the first car park that you meet on this lane. Postcode is NR14 8TS. There are toilets. Parking is Â£1.20 per hour unless you have a permit but there is also free parking along Whitlingham Lane before entering the park through the gate posts. I WILL MEET YOU UNDER THE BIG OAK TREE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CAR PARK.
