Activity: A one hour session that involves learning the Nordic walking technique initially (it usually takes 4 – 6 weeks to learn the basics).  Each week has a different theme and route that involves Nordic walking and other functional exercises using the poles while out on a walk.   A short Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire will need to be filled in before starting the activity.
IT IS FUN!   Nordic walking allows participant the chance to chat and socialise, as well as doing activity together designed to improve each individual’s health and fitness levels. Participants are carefully monitored and advised on how much to do.
