Description

This is a welcoming, friendly and sociable Nordic walking taster for FAB members where you’ll be taught the basic Nordic walking technique by Vicky Welsh of Let’s Walk Bristol and go for a gentle walk. Nordic walking is an outdoor fitness activity based on ordinary walking, adding two specially designed poles to boost your balance, strength and mental wellbeing. It is fun and easy to learn and great for your joints and back. Please come dressed appropriately for the weather conditions and wear trainers or walking shoes and clothing that will enable you to swing your arms easily. Please don’t bring a handbag, but a small backpack and water bottle (if it’s a hot day) is a good idea. If you are not a FAB member already, you can sign up on the day – it’s free!
