Join us for Nordic Walking We meet every Monday unless the weather dictates otherwise. Nordic Walking has its origins in Finland , as a summer exercise for winter skiers. It has became popular in the UK over the last twenty years. So what are the big attractions? People from all age groups can take part . Quite simply — it involves whole body exercise. But the potential benefits are many, according to medical experts. In particular, senior citizens can readily take part. Benefits include improved balance and posture, protection for hip and knee joints and better muscle tone. Like most physical activities, the effectiveness of Nordic Pole Walking increases when an experienced instructor is engaged. Our instructor is an expert coach on Nordic Walking technique. She makes sure that participants gain the maximum possible from their weekly sojourns. Over the last few months, under her expert tuition, up to a dozen members have practiced their pole walking skills in Pittencrieff, Ravenscraig and Riverside parks, Lochore Meadows, Culross, Loch Leven, Linlithgow Loch and Silverburn. And despite the strong winds on the Forth Bridge crossing, we were not blown away!!! If you have a favorite local spot, more than likely Kay can arrange a walk!! As with the Walking Group, distance can vary according to individual circumstances. Last but not least, there’s the social dividends.. invariably, we seem to find a café at our destination . Over a tea/ coffee and tray bake, we spend half an hour setting the world to rights.!!! Why don’t you come and join us?
