Nordic walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world with over 10 million enthusiasts now regularly taking part in what was originally used by super-fit cross country skiers as a way to stay fit during the summer.
However, it is not simply a case of grabbing a pair of poles and walking with them! It requires the correct technique in order to get the whole body working and it is essential you learn this from a qualified Instructor who will ensure you get the full benefit and fastest possible results.
Technique courses are instructor led with an emphasis on a fun and social way to enjoy the countryside.
The Technique Courses costs £25 Please note: you must attend session 1 & 2 to pass the Technique Course.
On completion of the technique course you will receive a certificate and a Competency Card which will allow you to attend any Regular Nordic Walks across Cheshire East. (Nordic walking poles will be provided at the taster and technique sessions). Booking in advance is essential.
