Nordic Walking – Taster Sessions

The Active Travel Hub, the Trinity, are offering free taster sessions for Nordic Walking. For those that have not heard of Nordic Walking it is an all over body workout and a more intense version of walking. Nordic walking can be done by most people and almost anywhere. They have a variety of Nordic Walking poles that would suit individuals with some health issues (please contact the Trinity for more details). The use of poles means that we give our upper body muscles a workout as well as the legs.  Our core muscles are also heavily engaged. As the poles propel us forward it makes us work harder but it will also feel easier.


They will be offering the following free taster sessions:


  • Friday, 7th June, between 1230 and 1315
  • Tuesday, 11th June, between 1700 and 1745
  • Saturday, 22nd June, between 1100 and 1155


These sessions are free and open to everyone. As the number of poles are limited your session must be booked. For more details please contact or call Jess on 01294 324664 or Kate on 01294 324298.
