We hold many different types of walks/sessions and this blog will inform you as to the differences.
Descriptions of our walks
We hold monthly training sessions in partnership with NT Wallington. These sessions are ideal for those who have never Nordic walked before or who would like to revisit their technique from the beginning.
Training is provided by Julie, the owner of Strolls With Poles. Julie has been Nordic Walking since 2005 and has been a Nordic Walking Instructor since 2012, so you are in good hands.
The training session includes:
- Provided with a set of poles (properly set up according to your height);
- A short introduction about Nordic walking, its benefits and it’s origin;
- Instruction for beginners using the INWA 10 Step Method ™;
- A 2 mile walk in the grounds of Wallington Hall;
- A cool down/stretching session and
- Access to Wallington for the rest of your visit.
Beginners to Nordic Walking often have questions about it, so we have tried to answer some of the typical questions that people ask. You can find these in the “FAQ” section, so why not take a look.
Ideal for those who are new to Nordic Walking but want to build up their distance.
These walks start from 2 miles up to 4 miles. They are flat and an ideal place to get some extra pointers on technique.
New to 2020 we are holding fitness walks which will be walks where speed and technique are the key.
The walks will be an hour long and will be walked at more than 4 miles an hour. We will be looking at technique to enable you to get the most out of Nordic Walking.
These are our usual walks which involve us visiting many of the beautiful areas of the North East. They are 5+ miles long and are walked at your own pace. These are generally all day events.
To help us to improve your technique we will be using video. It is an excellent way to identify any teaching points to help you. Don’t worry though the only people who will look at these will be me, Martin and you.
