HOW TO GET STARTED ..........
1. SMALL GROUP TRAINING SESSIONS - See dates below.
These 1.5 hour sessions will teach you the Nordic Walking basics, look at Nordic walking for health and fitness and enable you to get started with all of my classes. Cost is £15 per person and includes pole hire.
Please note that Nordic walking takes more than one session to become proficient. As with all learning it can take a while to move from being 'conciously competent' at something to it becoming second nature. Plus we all learn at different rates.
To remedy this either book on to a second or third small group training session or commit to ongoing learning as part of my regular weekly walks. After my weekly Haldon Forest Park sessions on Mondays and Thursdays training time is allocated to Nordic walking technique and health and fitness guidance.
Monday 19th July 2pm - Haldon Forest Park
Tuesday 14th September 1pm - National Trust Killerton
Thursday 23rd September 2pm - Haldon Forest Park

WHAT YOU WILL NEED
To attend a training session or walk all you will need is; a pair of Nordic walking poles, which are available to use in my classes, clothing that is comfortable and suitable for walking. A pair of flexible soled shoes such as trainers and water-proofs in case it rains.
If you have a bag wear a slim rucksac without side pockets enabling your arms to swing freely to support the technique.
Nordic Walking Poles are different from trekking poles as they have specially designed gloves, which are left and right handed to support the Nordic walking technique. The poles also need to be correctly sized for an individual's height, so that it is 'planted' in the correct position, at around 45 degrees to the ground. They also have a angled removable rubber ‘paw’, to cover the tips of the pole for use on hard surfaces. Advice on Nordic walking poles and correct sizing is given as part of Fiona's classes. (please note that standard treking poles cannot be used for Nordic walking as they just have a loose loop which is not appropriate.)
Covid 19. Please note for all sessions current national guidance on social distancing are fully adhered to and any poles hired are fully sanitised prior to use. Hand gel and gloves are also available for you. Plus feel free to wear a mask for your own security. If you have any concerns please do call me to discuss.
