Just in case you still have some more questions – we have popped some FAQs below
Why do I need to register and answer health questions before i can join a session?
Our professional teams need to make sure that our Members are able to enjoy WALX at the right level for them – who wants to feel left out at the back or that they are not getting the results or enjoyment they want from their precious leisure time? Health screening help us make sure we get the level right and keep everybody motivated and safe.
What types of WALX are ideal if I have concerns about my health and fitness?
Our wellness WALX are a mix of gentle walking, stretching, mobility and more so they would be ideal but we do also have some shorter Explorers WALX that might suit – we always make it clear if they are particularly steep or at a faster pace.
What should I look for if I want my WALX to be a workout that get real results FAST?
You sound like a Total Body WALXER! We know how to make every step a workout by bringing in the upper body and upping the CV elements. Total body WALX include drills and exercises that will build strength, tone the whole body and help you burn those calories too!
I just love walking – what benefit will I get from joining a WALX group?
We pre walk and plan everything so you know everything you need to know before you step outside your door. The route will be interesting, the leader will know where they are going and you will know beforehand how long you will be out, how to find the start and even how much parking might cost. Add to that, the fact that the pace will be just right, the group lovely and there will always be a good helping of SMILAGE our unique ingredient!
