Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Have a go at Nordic Walking

A new initiative that gives you the freedom to exercise anywhere has walked its way into Hambleton!

Free taster sessions are taking place in Northallerton to turn your walk into a full body workout through ‘Nordic Walking’.

“Nordic Walking is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels,” said David Earl, Hambleton District Council’s Development Officer – Health and Wellbeing.

“Classes range from gentle walks for people with health concerns, to workout walks, which are a great way to improve fitness, lose weight and tone the whole body.  It is no harder on the joints than walking and is suitable for people with joint conditions or who may be carrying some extra body weight.

“Nordic Walking burns more calories than regular walking, improves posture and co-ordination, can alleviate neck and should pain and is a sociable activity which is easy to learn. So come along and have a go!”

Taster sessions led by qualified and experience Nordic Walking instructor start on Thursday 21 September and run for eight weeks from Hambleton Leisure Centre from 10 -11am – poles will be provided.
