Nordic Walking

Nordic walking is also called power walking because, thanks to the poles, one uses the whole body to walk, including the upper body.

We, Catherine Barral and Camilla Robinson, are part of a small group which practice Nordic Walking every Wednesday 11.30-12.30 in Springfield park. Usually we meet at the bottom of Springfield park near the tennis court.

The group is small and we would like to open it to HU3A members who are interested. We are not coaches, could not offer training and participants would need to bring their own poles.

We meet regularly through the year in all weather and have a routine of warm ups at the start and some stretching at the end of each session. We walk within Springfield park on the grass, starting on level ground and moving on to more hilly one.

Whether you have previous experience of Nordic walking, or whether you don’t, but would like to try it out, please contact us by pressing on the link at the top right and come and have a look!

After our exercise hour, we go for a coffee and snack at the cafe in Springfield Park at 12:30. Even if you don't fancy the Nordic Walking, you are welcome to join us for a chat and social afterwards.
