Improving health is now one of the reasons given why people take up exercise! As walking is one of the preferred types of exercise to start with, Nordic Wellbeing is the ideal way to improve cardiovascular health with the added benefits of maintaining muscle strength, keeping bones healthy and preventing injury.
Kathrin Foster, class instructor says “Nordic Wellbeing will take you on a fun journey to improved health. You will learn how to be fit and strong enough to enjoy taking on new activities and challenges with confidence! It’s ideal for for people that want
- to start exercising again after
- feel not fit enough to join our regular walks or
- have a medical condition that prevents them from certain exercise.
Kathrin adds: “I ran this course in Stratford upon Avon last year and participants are now more confident and fitter to join our regular Nordic Walks.”
