Walking programmes that further embed technique improving fitness. Make friends whilst you exercise in the Great Outdoors in sessions that are tailored to your individual needs. Feel a sense of well-being as you re-energise in beautiful surroundings.
Each week in all the sessions there is a different focus which over time will help to deeply embed your Nordic Walking technique and also help with balance and muscle strengthening as well as fitness (tailored to you). This is all done through a "Walk" appropriate to each session, exploring the countryside and estates of Bristol.
Sessions are designed around alternating periods of high- and low-intensity activity using Nordic Technique, the terrain of the Downs and slopes and hills of Leigh Woods, Blaise and Ashton Court to full effect.
