LEARN TO NORDIC WALK COURSE
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. If you have tried Nordic Walking before or feel you may not need the full 4 session course why not ask your Instructor about the FASTtrack induction or CONVERSION course for Nordic walkers who want to brush up on technique and get a FREEDOM passport.
The cost of the Learn to Nordic Walk course via the FREEDOM 4 gear method is £45 for four sessions. This includes pole hire.
Adding more speed through improved technique, understanding how your body reacts to exercise and learning how to stay within your comfort zone.
Improving posture and understanding how to use technique, distance, speed and terrain to constantly ensure you get the most out of your Nordic Walking!
