Intensity: Very Low
Price: £0.00Book Activity
I have been successful in securing a grant to fund this project, Stronger Communities is a micro grant scheme from the Mayor of London. It aims to support projects which aim to improve and encourage social integration through sports related activities across the city. The sessions will be an adaptation of Nordic Walking and once mastered if required, instruction will be given to engage in the Nordic Walking Technique.
The activity is outdoors, wrap up, bring a hat to keep your ears warm, gloves can be worn with the poles, suitable shoes are advised and be prepared for the British weather!
Who is the course for? Anyone who wants to improve their balance, recover from surgery and get more active and wants the opportunity to meet new people.
The Poles Poles are supplied. Activator poles are designed for people with chronic conditions affecting balance, post-surgery, injuries and less active older adults. They are strapless and are made with a ledge on the handle to help engage the core and support the wrist in a neutral position.
Cost The project will be funded for 2 blocks of 6 weeks. Spaces will be opened for a second group of New Walkers starting on the 30th November.
Following the project there is the option to join the regular groups as PAYG or on a competitive monthly payment scheme.
