Every week I am offering Work-out and Low impact walks from Thorpe, adventure walks in Dimmingsdale and 1.5 hour Work-out walks from Rocester (Abbotsholme school).
On a regular basis I am offering longer walks followed by a hearty lunch or dinner in our BBQ-hut - a great opportunity to share Nordic Walking stories in a nice, warm, friendly atmosphere
Session one - The fundamentals of Nordic Walking technique. Gaining forward propulsion from the poles by engaging the correct upper body muscles, mastering hand grip and use of pole straps in order to develop technique.
Session two - Adapting the body position and pole angles for walking up and down hills.
Session three - Adding more speed through improved technique, understanding how your body reacts to exercise and learning how to stay within your comfort zone.
Session four - Improving posture and understanding how to use technique, distance, speed and terrain to constantly ensure you get the most out of your Nordic Walking!
It is essential to attend all 4 sessions. The technique is built up in 'layers' and you need to master each element before moving on. Both your brain and your muscles will need time to process the information and movements - practice makes perfect.
Nordic Walking UK has devised a unique structured teaching programme of four one hour sessions that will help you to master the basics and be able to competently Nordic Walk on your own or join into group walks all over the UK.
Your instructor will help you to not only master the technique but to understand which muscles are working and what's going on inside your body! The course will help you to understand your current level of fitness and empower you to get out and get the results you want from your Nordic Walking
Nordic Walking is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. Nordic Walking UK instructors always make sure you stay at the pace and level that is right for you.
Nordic Walking was originally used by elite cross country skiers as a way to stay in top shape throughout the Summer months. Now it has grown into a popular way for people of all ages and fitness levels to gain fitness, tone up, lose weight and improve their health.
Unlike when trekking or rambling, Nordic Walking poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along. This engages the upper body and makes you feel lighter on your feet.
