Technique Top Up
£35.00 – £40.00
Katie Atkins, Instructor and Nordic Walking Fitness Instructor for INWA and British Nordic Walking teaches these Technique based refresher sessions for Nordic Walkers in Bristol.
Let Katie help you gain the most benefits from your Nordic walking. Learn how to fully utilise and develop your Nordic Walking Technique to engage key muscle groups to give a fuller body workout.
Open ground, slopes, or uneven ground…there is technique behind it all ensuring that you can both enjoy and benefit from your Nordic walking in a way that is right for you.
Dr. Thorwesten of the University of Munster, Germany, showed that muscle exertion in the arms (11-14%), core, and legs increased when walking with poles, as opposed to regular walking, and the participant’s endurance increased significantly. However, the benefits were seen only in those who used the correct Nordic Walking technique.
“My posture, grip and pole placement were not quite right, but I couldn’t work out exactly what was wrong. One Technique Top Up session later with Katie on The Downs and I am really motoring again!Katie is an excellent teacher, very encouraging without being patronising…My lousy technique was basically deconstructed and rebuilt correctly- all in just one hour! I can thoroughly recommend Katie for a Technique Top Up session.” Jan Jones

What To Wear
Please ensure you wear layers of clothing to keep warm. Long loose trousers, a shirt, a fleece or sweatshirt and then a lightweight cagoule/waterproof coat in the event of rain. These layers can then be removed or then added one layer at a time if needs be.
Walking boots with a flexible sole and with a deep tread are best footwear.
