Walk Description:

Learn how to Nordic walk for fitness or just for fun in a relaxed group atmosphere. This course takes you through the basics of Nordic walking so that you get the most from your efforts.

You will learn how to use the poles to improve your posture and get your whole body mobilised and learn how to increase (and decrease!) intensity so that you control the exercise. All of this means that you`re working at the level that`s right for you

Once you`ve completed the Learn to Nordic Walk course you will be able to join any of the regular classes, confident in the knowledge that you`re in control of the intensity and able to get the most from the sessions

We start the session using strapless poles, getting you used to the technique. We then swap to strapped poles for the remainder of the session as we increase the tempo & intensity.

The second session is a Graduation walk (date to suit you but must be within 2 weeks of session 1)

 

If you are worried about your current fitness levels or health concerns then get in touch.
