A summary

Do you want to get fit in 2023? Would you like to get back to Nordic Walking but feel worried that you have forgotten how to do it? Perhaps you'd like to have a 'taste' of Nordic Walking to see if it's something that you'd like to learn how to do. This refresher/taster session is for both people who have prior experience of Nordic Walking and those who are new to the technique. It is suitable for all ages and levels of ability. Poles will be provided if needed. During the session we will run through the updated 10 steps to Nordic Walking that form the basis of the British Nordic Walking technique. We will use a combination of exercises and drills to practise each step, evaluating progress using video and peer feedback. The session will run from 2-3pm. After the session there will be refreshments and there will then be the option to put what you have learned into practise by joining the Weekly Fitness Walk around Wilby which starts at 3.30pm.

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.
