West Lothian 50+ Network Nordic Walking
Group Leader: Anne Webster
West Lothian 50+ Network
We are in the process of trying to set up a new Nordic Walking group. A number of members have benefited from a free introductory training session at Balbardie Park.
Trainer Derek Storey has taken members through the basics of this form of exercise which was originally a summer training regime for cross-country skiers. It’s based on using specially designed walking poles in a way that harnesses the power of the upper body to propel you forward as you walk.
Everyone who took part really enjoyed it and is looking forward to more training sessions.
