Nordic Walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world as an enhancement of ordinary walking-only twice as effective. Nordic Walking uses poles to add two major benefits to walking.
*The use of poles means the upper bodymuscles are used as well as the legs.
* The poles help to propel the walker along meaning that he or she works harder than usual yet the support from the poles makes it feel easie.r
On the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month there is a 'beginners walking' for 1 hour. These are circular walks which start and finish at the Library for 10am for the seated exercise sessions.
On the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays we have Nordic Walks exploring the local walks and footpaths. Between 3 and 6 miles. These also start at the gym at 9am .
All sessions are free including the seated exercise session.
Please bring your own poles ifyou have them, wear trainers and bring water. We have a limited number of poles for use.
