Our Nordic Walking Beginners Courses are a fun 6-week course of 6 x 1hr sessions. During these sessions, you will learn the full INWA 10 steps of Nordic Walking in detail with drills and lessons to perfect your technique. You won't need anything as such for this course as poles are provided.  Just turn up in clothing to suit the weather, we recommend trainers rather than walking boots but not essential at this stage.
