Walk Description:

Gentle WALX are a gentle safe way to walk yourself fitter! 

Gentle WALX incorporate balance work, flexibility and strength exercises and maybe a bit of tai chi or relaxation too. Great for those who are getting back into exercise, have a health condition or simply want to move well and be fit for life! Our wellbeing Instructors are qualified to deliver WALX for all levels so it’s never too late to take that first step.

These 1 hour Gentle WALX are on mostly flat paths but with some tree roots and ruts. Walking shoes are suitable. 

This session is perfect for all abilities and ages but is aimed at those who need a slow, gentle pace, or even wheelchair bound.

Please bring a towel or yoga mat, a cuppa (drink), a slice cake (or your favourite treat) and a deck chair! We try to ensure we have a sit down with refreshments afterwards.

It is essential to register and book in advance online.

This is a small group walk.

We are adhereing to strict Covid-19 social distancing protocol. Please use your own poles and equipment. Please do not book on for for a 121 WALX if you think you may have symptons, or do have symptons or have been in contact with some one who has symptons. Thank you for your undertanding.

Please ensure your PARQ is up to date and notify us in writing if you have any change to your medical records, or physical or mental wellbeing. This should include any surgery, falls, knocks or accidents. Thank you.

It is advisable to wear a bum bag with a water bottle or hydration pack. Do bring a high energy snack to have on the hoof or as soon as we finish. Wear comfortable clothing that suitable for the weather. Do wear sturdy grippy shoes.

We respect people`s busy agendas and do like to start promptly. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your class and be ready to start on time. Please do not be offended if we do not wait whilst you get yourself sorted. We do a warm up close by so please do catch up.

Walk speed guide:

Gentle stroll - Gear 1 - Nice pace that you can do for extended periods. 2-2.5mph (these generally are our Well Being walks)   Easy walk -Gear 2 - Faster pace gained through technique. Expect Gear 2 at times throughout the walk with occasional photo stops. 2.5mph (Most of our 1 hour adventure walks)   Moderate walk - Gear 2/3 - Faster again using technique and with less recovery. Very little stopping. 2.5mph-3mph+ (these are generally our Step up and Stride out Workout walks and longer Adventure walks)   Strenuous walk - gear 3/4 and Power Stride workout walks and Challenge training.

You are asked to contact your WALX Guide by phone, leaving a voicemail or sending an sms text to the number listed below, if you are likely to be delayed as we do start classes promptly.

Whilst we do understand that sometimes it is not possible to make a class, please be aware that we do operate a no refund policy if you give us less than 2 hours’ notice.

All activities are undertaken at your own risk. We cannot be held responsible for any injuries or accidents incurred. We undertake to deliver all classes with qualified staff and have made every effort to risk assess all WALX. On occassions it is necessary to make dynamic risk assessment decisions when there is a localised incident such as trees fallen on route, flooding, traffic changes, etc.

Please ensure your PARQ is up to date and notify us in writing if you have any change to your medical records, or physical or mental wellbeing. This should include any surgery, falls, knocks or accidents. Thank you.
