Walk tall naturally with purpose

Refreshers & Restarters

Every 4 to 6 weeks, Nordic Walking for Health offers a series of different group walks for Nordic walkers of different abilities and experience – however long ago you successfully completed a course – as refresher, restarter and ‘Old Timer’ sessions.

Depending on how regularly someone Nordic walks, brushing up on technique and correcting old habits that tend to creep back in is a good thing to do every 6 to 12 months.

Beginners are also welcome to take part in ‘Been a long time’ Restarters, as these are run the same way as Taster Sessions.

Group session size is 3 to 8 people and the price is usually £10 per person, but the cost ranges from £5 to £20 per person depending on total numbers. 1on2 and 1on1 sessions cost between £20 and £60 per person depending on the length of the session.

'Been a long time' Restarters

These are for beginners as well as for those whose life has been so busy since successful course completion that Nordic walking has had no chance, i.e. for those who want to try again.
