Join us for a beautiful AM walk in Sheppard's Bush! Bring your Nordic Poles!!
• What we'll do These fun bimonthly Nordic Pole Fitness Walks are for those who have taken part in an “Introductory Nordic Pole walking clinic” and/or know how to Nordic Pole walk, own their own poles and can easily walk for 1 hour. What a wonderful way to stay fit, have fun and walk with others who love to Nordic Pole Walk. You are more than welcome to join any or all our walks throughout the year! During these walks Shawn will share: walking tips, clothing tips, warm-up tips, stretching tips, muscle conditioning tips and nutritional tips... • What to bring Bring your poles and dress for any weather! Dress in layers and we will discuss clothing for fall walking. Wear running shoes but remember that the trails can be a little muddy at times after a rain. We are protected from the sun and wind by the canopy of the trees but feel free to wear sunglasses or a hat if you wish. In case of rain - no worries. Wear appropriate attire! I like to wear a baseball hat to keep the rain off of my face. The canopy of the trees is wonderful. The only time we don't walk is in a thunderstorm There are bathrooms available and don't forget your poles and water!! Every day is a perfect day for Nordic Pole walking!
