Spring is a great time to enjoy the fresh air, get fit and connect with others by signing up for a block of 8 weekly fitness Nordic Walks in and around Charlotte's Wood in Wilby. The aim of these walks is to improve personal fitness and stamina through regular walking with poles. The group will meet each Friday afternoon for a warm up and then there are then two options depending on your personal level of fitness; you can either choose to walk circuits of Charlotte’s Wood, at your own pace, or you can come on a walk with your instructor of 1-1.5 hours (3-4 miles) on different routes around Wilby village. There is then either a group or a self-directed cool down session. Please note that you need to be familiar with the Nordic Walking technique in order to participate in Nordic Fitness Walks. Poles may be borrowed if you don’t have your own. If you aren't able to attend all 8 sessions, you can book individual sessions.

About Nordic Walking
Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to enhance your natural walking experience. With a technique that is similar to the upper body action of classic cross-country skiing, Nordic Walking is a whole body exercise that can be enjoyed at many levels, from walking for health to athletic Nordic running. More than 10 million people globally enjoy this outdoor activity all year round. Nordic Walking combines the simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing. The result is a full body workout, which means that you: • burn up to 46% more calories compared to walking without poles • release tension in the neck and shoulders • improve your posture and gait • strengthen your back and abdominal muscles • reduce the impact on the joints And because Nordic Walking doesn’t feel like hard work, you’ll be happy to walk further and for longer.
