Walk Description:

In anticipation of being able to come together in small groups while applying social distancing measures, we are excited to welcome newcomers to the use of poles to exercise the whole body while walking. In this 90mins session, you'll learn the basics of Nordic walking and gain your Nordic Walking UK Freedom Passport. You'll gain the skills to get the most from your own walking as well as being able to join national Nordic Walking UK and WALX classes. Locally, you'll be able to book into any of our  Derwent and Dales WALX straight away and enjoy effective, total body walking in beautiful surroundings. We'll provide the poles, so you just need to arrive dressed for walking and exercising outdoors - this means comfortable footwear with reasonable grip, comfortable trousers and possibly a rain jacket! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch - just click on Contact above for mobile phone and email details.   We will be stepping back out with caution to make sure that people can enjoy safe, effective outdoor exercise. To help keep everybody safe we have added some questions to our online medical screening, provided advice on route planning, hygiene and travel to our Instructors and will adhere to all Government guidelines on group size.  Contact Sam Armstrong if you have any further questions.  Sam@walxderwentdales.co.uk
