Nordic Walking week commencing 18th December, 2017
You hardy bunch you! Our wonderful walkers grabbed their poles and braved the conditions to show up for classes last week and what a fun time they had! Gordon, Denise, Rachel and Paul took the classes on Monday and Tuesday and along with some of our walkers made the most of the snow! Yipee!
Well done to all the walkers who came to the Quiz and did very well with quite a tough one this year! It was pretty cold so the sausages and chips helped! Thanks again for coming especially as it was so cold. How about we do a few charity walks in the new year to raise funds for a couple of patio heaters for the Hub?!
WALKS DURING CHRISTMAS WEEK
Reports have shown that when your usual exercise routine is interrupted, it can be very hard to get back into it again after a few weeks off. Even a two week break can lead to weight gain and low moods and a negative cycle can begin.
So to make sure this doesn’t happen and you get your walks in over the holidays, we are running classes over the Christmas week. If you have family or friends visiting and they enjoy walking, you are welcome to bring them along with you too! All guests over the holidays can come free of charge.
NORDIC WALKING CLASS COSTS:
All evening classes – £5
Moderate & Gentle Plus – £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
NEW SPEED GRADING KEY:
1 = Striders (for the faster Nordic Walker, optional Hill running)
2 = HIT Nordic (High Intensity Training, Tough and exhilarating!)
3 = Moderate (yet challenging)
4 = Gentle Plus (smidge slower than Moderate yet invigorating)
5 = Gentle (marginally slower than G+ class but energizing)
6 = Super G (Very slow so extra care can be taken)
*BOOKING ESSENTIAL FOR ALL CLASSES MARKED BOLD BY 8PM THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WALK. THANKS.
