Nordic Walking Sessions
Nordic Walking Workout Classes
Nordic Walking Workout classes are designed to give you an overall body workout that incorporates the the various elements of fitness. The 75 minute fitness sessions start with a gentle warm up to get the body prepared for the session. Following the warm up we have a Nordic Walk. You are encouraged to walk at the pace that is right for you so that you can gradually build up your cardiovascular fitness in a safe and effective way.
After our walk we return to the start to do some resistance and flexibility exercises before finishing off with some gentle stretches.
Nordic Social Walks
We aim to offer a social walk each month. These walks last approximately two hours and take in the beautiful Wirral scenery. The walks start with a gentle warm up and finish with stretches. The rest of the time is an opportunity to practice your technique and have a natter with the other members of the group.
How to get Started
To be able to get the most of the Nordic Walking elements of the classes, it is important to know the correct pole technique.
We realise that people want to know what the classes are like before committing to the beginners workshop. With this in mind, we invite you to come along to a class (walking without the poles for the walk element), to get to know the other group members and find out more about the classes. If you decide this is for you, we can arrange for you to take part in a beginners workshop.
The two hour beginners workshop will take you through everything you need to know to get the best out of your Nordic Walks. By using the correct technique, you can achieve an all over body workout while enjoying the beautiful views of the Wirral.
Once you have completed the beginners workshop, you can join the 'Dancing in the Rain Nordic Walking Group' giving you a guaranteed place on any of the walks available. Alternatively, you can choose to be a group guest and pay as go.
Please note that there is a maximum number of group places and at times there may be a waiting list. In this case, you will be offered a place on the walks as a group guest as and when they become available.
