Walk Description:

If you have been enjoying your walks and feeling the benefits of being outside, it is time to start walking with poles.

Why not come and feel the power of the poles and try Nordic Walking with qualified instructors!

Turbocharge an ordinary walk but adding in pole power and the Nordic Walking Technique for a total body workout! 

Nordic WALX is a cheeky exercise in disguise that burns 40% more calories than ordinary walking plus tones the body on the hoof.

What`s not to love?

You are literally "planking" your core and doing 1000 sit-ups in 15 minutes without even realising.

 It`s an exhilarating effective cheeky workout in disguise!

This 45-minute session will help you understand just how beneficial the power of the poles can be and how it is far more than just a saunter in a park! Come and feel the magic and power of the poles.

You will be using the poles to understand how the poles can propel you along and work the whole body. You will also understand why it is important to learn the technique properly in order to get maximum benefit. This is a cheeky exercise in disguise and has a very wide appeal for all abilities and ages.

If you are just starting your health and fitness journey you will love how you can exercise without feeling the exertion.

We’d love to share some of the well-being comments from members with different abilities, ages, and energy levels,  who love the positive healthy changes Nordic WALX has made for them.

Our Covid-19 social distancing protocol is:

Do keep 2 metres apart. Only use your own poles and equipment.  Carry a face mask and hand sanitiser (use regularly especially if you handle gates, etc). Wear a face mask if you feel more comfortable doing so. Please do not book on for a WALX if you think you may have symptoms, or do have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has symptoms. Ensure you book in advance so that our Contact and Trace records are accurate.

Please do wear decent footwear; we recommend a grippy sole shoe with a flexible upper. Do also dress appropriately for the weather in comfortable layers of outdoor clothing.

We supply the poles, hygienically cleaned with medical alcohol. 

Please ensure you bring some water and a snack if required. 

Continue with WALXwithsole to get fitter and sleeker. We have a very varied weekly diary offering a lot of choice in types of WALX to keep you wanting more, plus choices of times and energy!

You are asked to contact your Instructor phone by phone, leaving a voicemail or sending an sms text to the number 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.  

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.

Please email janine@WALXwithsole.co.uk or phone 07792 550191 if you have any questions. 

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 occasions, it is necessary to make dynamic risk assessment decisions when there is a localised incident such as trees falling on the route, flooding, traffic changes, etc.

Please don't forget your inhalers! We are an outdoor exercise group so you may need it if there is a change in air temperatures, air quality or exertion. Likewise, do ensure you have taken your medication, packed your epi[ens and checked your blood sugar levels.

Please ensure you have completed the online health questionnaire (PARQ) and notify us in writing if you have any changes to your medical records or physical or mental wellbeing. This should include any surgery, falls, knocks, or accidents. Thank you.
