This is a series of 4 lessons . the other 3 sessions are Saturday 14th, 21st & 28th April. If you cannot make a session you may do a catch up session 30 minutes before next session.
Each session adds another ‘gear’ and helps you to understand how to gain propulsion, gradually increase the workload and learn how to Nordic walk for fitness, weight loss or fun! Four one hour sessions in a relaxed group suitable for all levels.
Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking:
1. The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs
2. The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!
3. Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body.
4. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
Poles are provided

Nordic Walking? "No way!" I said 4 years ago. But....I tried it...was hooked in 5 minutes....was qualified as an Nordic Walking Instructor 3 days later and now take my poles with me everywhere.
