Nordic Walking week commencing 24th April, 2017
Hi Nordic Walkers,
Big News this week – We have two new Walk Leaders to join Gordon at Walk2Fitness! Well done to Rachel and Denise for completing their Walk Leader qualification and becoming part of the team. What this means for everyone is that we will be able to offer more walks for you.
Also this weekend I completed another Nordic Walking Instructor Course; this time with British Nordic Walking and the International Nordic Walking Federation so I have fresh ideas and I will be offering workshops soon for a technique shake up! Yipee!
Last week we had a superb charity walk in Bolnhurst arranged by Caron for Bedford Hospice Day Care Centre and Breast Cancer UK. Thanks to all of you who came along to support this worthy cause.
POP UP FRIDAY WALK – £5
Sharpenhoe Clappers, Streatley. This walk is flat and one of the most scenic walks we do. The countryside is at it’s best right now and what better place to view it that on top of the Clappers. The views will take your breath away. Afterwards we can venture to the Old Mill in Barton just off the bypass for a cuppa and snoop around. The nearest postcode for the carpark in Streatley is MK45 4SH. Anyone who wishes to carpool, just let me know. Thanks.
NEW TRIAL MONDAY EVENING CLASS – 8th MAY 2017 – 5pm
I will be trialing a new evening class at Barton Le Clay on Monday evenings at 5pm. This walk is a great challenge taking in panoramic views that are just stunnng. There are some hills which we love and our heart and lungs love too! (not to mention the fab calorie burning!) This will be a Moderate paced class. £5 Put this date in your diary! Yay!
NORDIC WALKING CLASS COSTS:
All evening classes – £5
Moderate & Gentle Plus – £5 or £4 if you have your own Poles
Moderate Plus & Gentle – £5
Super G – £10
Long Distance and Pop Up walks costs dependent on Distance.
Private Sessions: £12.50
SPEED GRADING KEY:
1 = Moderate Plus (for the faster Nordic Walker, optional Hill running)

3 = Gentle Plus (smidge slower than Moderate yet invigorating)
4 = Gentle (marginally slower than G+ class but energizing)
5 = HIT Nordic (High Intensity Training, Tough and exhilarating!)
