Nordic ‘Stride for Life’ Walking Course
This course will teach you the foundational skills of Nordic Walking and how to effectively use poles to get the most out of walking. Nordic Walking is an aerobic exercise that engages both upper and lower body muscles whilst strengthening your posture. Participants wanting to join Arthritis ACT weekly and monthly Nordic Walking Groups must first complete the course. Nordic Walking poles can be loaned for the duration of the course and must be returned upon completion.
The course will run over 2x1hr sessions (with a 3rd session if necessary). Session times can be flexible depending on the instructor. To book a spot, please call 1800 011 041.
