Nordic Walking in the Derbyshire Dales
Derbyshire Dales District Council is planning to add Nordic Walking to its popular Walking for Health programme this spring.
A series of one-hour taster sessions for the free walks are planned in Whitworth Park, Darley Dale from 10.00am – 3.00pm on Wednesday 22 February and Tuesday 21 March. The sessions will be run by trained International Nordic Walking Federation Instructors and walking poles will be provided.
Nordic Walking has proven benefits for many health conditions including arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, pulmonary disease, and menopause. It is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. 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.
