- extra dates are used when a session is postponed due to the weather and/or if participants extend the course to learn the higher Health and/or Fitness levels of technique beyond foundation

Feedback from a participant on a recent course: “… huge thank you for the Healthwalks Nordic Walking course, which I very much enjoyed and got a lot out of … your patience and support were much appreciated, along with all your advice on poles. … I will be out practising in the parks and on the seafront!” Louize, 50s – Summer 2017
