Walk Description:

Learn to Nordic Walk 

You will learn the fundamentals of the Nordic Walking technique. Gaining forward propulsion from the poles by engaging the correct upper body muscles, understanding correct gait and co-ordination.

Session two – Mastering handgrip and use of the pole straps in order to develop technique by adapting the body position and pole angles for walking up and down hills.

Session three - Adding more speed through improved technique, understanding how your body reacts to exercise and learning how to stay within your comfort zone.

Session four -  Improving posture and understanding how to use technique, distance, speed and terrain to constantly ensure you get the most out of your Nordic walking! Session four also helps you find `your` gear and estabish the level you like to work at.  

Today is your `Graduation` walk, so bring some pennies as we will end up in a cafe to celebrate and discuss your `Freedom Passports`
