Walk Description:

In this 90 minute session, you will learn the basics of Nordic walking, gaining 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 my Burgess Park classes straight away and enjoy effective, total body walking in nature.  

Please ensure you can carry all personal items with you by way of a small rucksack or bumbag – you will need to be able to swing your arms freely without your bag getting the way.

Trainers will be fine for this park walk and a small bottle of water is always good to bring along.  

When joining us, we ask you to read and agree to the safety measures below.  

Once you have completed this 90 minute session you will be able to book online onto any of the walks we offer through our community group team as well as gain access to the hundreds of Nordic walks offered around the country by other Nordic Walking UK instructors and walk leaders.      

Health measures:

Our online health questionnaire asks you to update your current health status. If you feel unwell between booking your class and joining us, we ask that you err on the side of caution and cancel your booking. You will be recredited to book another date or a refund can be issued.  


We advise you NOT to buy your own poles before the Power of Poles session - come and try first. We are able to loan poles on this beginners' session.


To maintain equipment cleanliness, we do not loan poles for regular classes. Please get in touch if you'd like to buy poles after the Power of Poles workshop.


Once you've completed the Power of Poles, you will be entitled to discounted WALX membership and will be entitled to the members' prices on the WALX Store - ask for details.
