Gentle WALX that incorporates balance work, flexibility and strength exercises and maybe a bit of tai chi or relaxation too.
A gentle safe way to walk yourself fitter. Join our Wellbeing WALX Guides on a sociable, fun and enjoyable walk. We use strapped Nordic, strapless urban and activator Poles, or you can walk without if you prefer. If you have your own poles then bring them along with you.
Walking and incorporating specially designed exercises that improve joint mobility, balance and strength, posture and reducing weight from hips, knees and ankles. 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 wellness guides are qualified to deliver WALX for all levels so it’s never too late to take that first step.
Suitable for those who want to build up to longer or more vigorous walks or may have concerns about their health. We like to give some different challenges, which are all appropriate for your levels of fitness and physical ability.
If you are feeling lonely and want to make more friends, feel stiff and lack energy, struggle to get out of your chair; then this class is exactly for you. It will get you moving whilst having fun and all sessions are adapted to ensure everyone feels part of the club.
The route taken across the Chase varies each week but the intention is to take a midweek walk with a gentle intensity of approximately 2 miles exploring the picturesque Cannock Chase.
We offer a chance to catch up and chat with friends or if you prefer to enjoy being outdoors but want some time to yourself then relax and let us worry about the route and you can enjoy your surroundings safely.
Refreshments and toilets are available at the Visitor Centre.
Our WALX Guides are professional, qualified and passionate about making your WALX unforgettable!
