The first “Urban Pole” Nordic walking program we launched from the Healthy Living Festival this summer was definitely a success as it came to its completion August 4, 2015 . The group gathered no matter the weather (we got caught in one of those impressive rain storms once –just once though) and learned how to make the most beneficial use of our poles in the fitness sport activity of Nordic Walking. The keen group achieved improvement over the 5 weeks of their walking and exercise tolerance and were eager to continue their fun.
So, if you missed out because you just couldn’t jam another thing in this summer, prepare to try a new fall activity among the beautiful colours. Another Nordic Walking Program is set to start Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting September 29, 2015.
