NORDIC WALKING FOR BEGINNERS                 Wed     10.30-12.00

Tutor: Maggie Jennings
Using the upper body, Nordic Walking is a total body workout.  Done properly, it uses 90% of the body’s muscles.  It can build stamina and strength, allowing you to walk further and faster.  You will learn to find your own level and pace, but please keep in mind, this is not an amble!  The poles automatically push you forward so with no more effort, you will go a bit faster, thus getting more exercise in less time.  Poles are supplied during instruction but you are encouraged to have your own eventually, allowing you to exercise in between walks.  You need to be able to walk about 4 miles with comparative ease, as by the middle of the course we will be doing that mileage.  We start the course at Saxmundham, but later we will walk in other local areas to gain experience on different terrain.  After the course there are various Nordic Walks you can join in with. It is advisable to bring a small rucksack with a bottle of water to each class.
