Want to stay fit and healthy and have fun too – put a ‘spring’ in your step – Walk This Way!

Nordic Walking is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy a sense of escape, meet new people, and get that all important regular ‘brisk walking’ exercise – and of course those poles work the upper body too!

We’ll be teaching a new group of beginners the British Nordic Walking and INWA 10 Step technique in the Newcastle area, then trying out our new walking skills within the local Staffordshire landscape.

All participants must come equipped with suitable clothing and footwear, ensuring that you bring along the following:
