Nordic Walking week commencing 12th February, 2018
After a very cold and windy start for our Pop Up walk we settled in for a stomping 8.5 miles walk (yes, with the adjusted route we did an extra mile!) Well done to all who came along.
NORDIC WORKSHOPS – 40 mins – £5
My Nordic Workshops are for any walker who wants to improve their technique. Whether you are wanting to nail the arm swing, pole placement or learn the full extension so you can stride out confidently and competently, then please book on. I will be running these workshops on Weekdays and Saturdays every now and then to assist you in perfecting your technique and getting the most out of your poles.
NORDIC WALKING CLASS COSTS:
All evening classes – £5
Moderate – £5 or £4 if you have your own Poles
Striders & Gentle – £5
Super G – £10
Long Distance and Pop Up walks costs dependent on Distance.
Private Sessions: £12.50 – £15
SPEED GRADING KEY:
1 = Striders (for the faster Nordic Walker, optional Hill running)
2 = HIT Nordic (High Intensity Training, Tough and exhilarating!)
3 = Moderate (2 Speeds to choose from)
4 = Gentle Plus (a smidge slower than Mod 2)
5 = Gentle (slow, steady, energizing)
6 = Super G (Very slow so extra care can be taken)
