This group all took part in a themed day that was run by Dudley Parks as part of their Summer Nordic programme and we just love how they are smiling their way through the TREK FIT circuits!
Tom Weaver, the Senior parks activity activator advisor from Dudley Metropolitan Council physicals sports & physical activity team told us ”
In June we decided to run a 12 week summer Nordic programme – 2 groups were formed on Thursday evenings during the summer. Both ran in the same time slot offering a beginners Nordic walking course and a NWUK ‘Trek Fit’ option for those existing Nordic Walkers wishing to advance their fitness levels.
We were delighted that attendance for the groups was approximately 35-40 each week, and continued in blazing sunshine or pouring rain.At the end of the 12 weeks we ran a trek fit themed “Sports Day” which allowed both ability groups to join together for a big finale and we thought we would share the photos!”
The Nordic Walking UK ‘Ultimate Nordic Circuits’ are additional modules (Ski fit & Trek fit) made available to our Instructors to help them add progression, variety and fun into their Nordic Walking programmes and we have to say that in this instance…it has definitely worked!
