Have you heard how Nordic Walking is a fun way to get active?  It’s suitable for a wide range of abilities and can be easily fitted into your regular routine.

Above all, it’s important to learn the correct technique to get the greatest benefits from your time out with the poles.  Derbyshire based instructor Catherine Hughes has been teaching people how to Nordic Walk in Shipley for over 12 years.  She has worked people who have Parkinson’s, amputees, and middle aged folk who’ve not done any exercise since leaving school.  In contrast, Catherine has also worked with primary school children and runners who enjoy cross-training.  She can show you how to adapt the technique depending on your current level of fitness and similarly for what you hope to get from Nordic Walking on a regular basis.  It only takes a few lessons to master this great form of exercise invented in Finland twenty years ago.

Catherine will provide all the equipment.  As a result, you just need to turn up dressed for a walk in the park, with shoes suitable for walking on grass (no sandals please)

Each year Catherine delivers a number of FREE sessions to the local community.  In 2018 she will provide her 10th year’s session for the Erewash Footprints Walking festival.

The informal taster sessions will take place on Saturday 15th September at Shipley Country Park at 11:30am.  The session will end at 12:30pm.

To book a place on the taster session contact Catherine via her email or phone and leave your height (in imperial or metric)
