The Gentle Paced Beginner Course is for the fitter individual who wants to incorporate Nordic Walking into an already active lifestyle and is confident they can cope with a gentle 2 hour tuition session.

It is essential that you book online in advance. Decent footwear with grippy soles  is suggested as well as dressing appropriately for the weather, using layers of clothing. We provide the poles.

We will ensure you learn the technique and feel confident to Nordic Walk. This special class covers the following:

Phase one - 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.

Phase 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.

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

Phase 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!
