Beginner classes

Welcome. Are you looking to improve your fitness, get motivated and have some fun? Do you love being outdoors and exercising in a friendly sociable group? Then why not try something new!

Nordic walking uses specially designed poles which exercise your upper body as well as your lower body, so your walk transforms into a total body workout. It will strengthen your core and back, burn calories and help trim and tone. 

When you Nordic walk with us you can join any of our popular daily hour-long fitness walks which exercise and tone your body, all in the great outdoors. Using Nordic walking poles give you a fantastic fitness boost!

To get you started our experienced instructors will teach you the correct technique at a Beginner Workshop. This group will be up to 6 people and will last just over an hour. It's great fun, friendly and don't worry about your fitness level. You can take it at your own pace. 

We always supply poles for free but if you're interested in buying your own poles you can find our favourite Nordic walking poles here. If you're looking for our advice on best walking kit here's our recommendations on: walking shoes  /  waterproof boots  /  waterproof jackets  /  walking socks.


Our Workshops are £15 and if you'd like an informal chat first call Ros on 07886 885213.
