LearnTo Nordic Walk
12 Apr 2014
Matt’s One-day LearnTo Nordic Walk course is structured as follows:
The fundamentals of Nordic Walking technique. Gaining forward propulsion from the poles by engaging the correct upper body muscles, understanding correct gait and co-ordination. Mastering handgrip and use of the pole straps in order to develop technique. Adapting the body position and pole angles for walking up and down hills.
Adding more speed through improved technique, understanding how your body reacts to exercise and learning how to stay within your comfort zone.
Improving posture and understanding how to use technique, distance, speed and terrain to constantly ensure you get the most out of your Nordic walking!
Complete the LearnTo with a guided Nordic walk within one week of completing the One-day course.
