In anticipation of being able to come together in small groups while applying social distancing measures, we are excited to welcome newcomers to the use of poles to exercise the whole body while walking.
In this 90mins session, you'll learn the basics of using poles for walking, gain your Nordic Walking UK Freedom Passport. You'll gain the skills to get the most from your own walking as well as being able to join national Nordic Walking UK and WALX classes.
Locally, you'll be able to book into any of our Derwent and Dales WALX straight away and enjoy effective, total body walking in beautiful surroundings. We'll provide the poles which will be cleaned every time after use, so you just need to arrive dressed for walking and exercising outdoors - this means comfortable footwear with reasonable grip, comfortable trousers and possibly a rain jacket! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch - just click on Contact above for mobile phone and email details.
We will be stepping back out with caution to make sure that people can enjoy safe, effective outdoor exercise following Gov guidelines.
Contact Sam Armstrong if you have any further questions.
