Walk Description:

Join us for a 60 min walk around Carrbrook to blow away those cobwebs! This session is aimed at gear 2 but suitable for anyone wanting to improve their fitness

Before booking onto this walk, please ensure you agree with our latest COVID guidelines

Head/chest torch and hi-vis clothing are a must! Speak to Jane if you need any advice - she has a few hi-vis vests to lend out, but you need to let her know in advance

Get power walking with poles and get those hearts pumping! A walk that is focussed on improving your cardio-vascular fitness. It is fun and will challenge you appropriately. These action packed one hour walks are designed to help you to improve your fitness levels and gain results.

Pay close attention to your posture, stand tall, draw your stomach in and work your core. Using the natural lay of the land you will strengthen your body with the resistance of the pole plant technique, tone up and lose weight. 

Depending on the route, we`ll either be using the hills to provide resistance, or we`ll work on speed and different gears.
