Walk tall naturally with purpose

Small Group Sessions now available !

As of 1 June, UK Government updated its guidance for personal trainers and coaches on the phased return of sport and recreation in England stating “If you are a personal trainer/coach you can now work with clients outdoors, providing you are meeting no more than 5 other people from outside of your household, outdoors, and you are staying a minimum of 2 metres apart.”

Nordic Walking for Health has decided initially to phase this easement of measures slightly more cautiously and is, therefore, now offering sessions for groups of up to four people from no more than two different households.

The usual guidelines regarding physical distancing and hygiene to avoid becoming infected with, or transmitting, the coronavirus apply.

Advice for healthy 70 year olds and over continues to be that they should take particular care to minimise contact with others outside their household by complying with physical distancing restrictions, especially if outdoors more frequently.

For people shielding updated advice from 1 June is that you “may wish to consider spending time outdoors once a day. This can be with members of their own household or, for those shielding alone, with one person from another household.” If doing so, it still remains important to “to minimise contact with others by keeping 2 metres apart at all times.”

Booking is now open for taster sessions, beginner & extended courses as well as for refresher & assessment sessions. Refresher/assessment sessions are available for Nordic walking technique as well as for walking with trekking poles and walking unaided: these are ‘Walk Better for You !’ sessions. To make an enquiry, click on Nordic Walking for Health to send an email or text/phone 07813 524587.
