The purpose of this introductory 75 min. session is for you to learn correct Nordic Walking technique. A popular misconception is that Nordic Walking is simply walking with poles. Nothing could be farther from reality! There is a specific technique to be learned in order to perfect the plant, push, propel actions that turn a walk into a turbo-charged aerobic activity.
This clinic is suitable for adults of all ages and abilities. The sessions will take place in scenic locales near the town centre, with minimal elevation change. But the scenery will be outstanding so be sure to bring your camera for a photo stop or two!
The focus of these small group sessions is proper use of the equipment and proper Nordic walking technique. At the end of the clinic you'll have all the information you need to use your poles on your own, with friends, or on more adventurous outings with other Adventure Hub partners. Indeed, if you wish to continue with an exploration of all Canmore has to offer, I can provide a 50% discount on booking your group of 2 - 4 people a unique & thoroughly entertaining Mystery Town Tour, a self-guided walking (or cycling) tour using your smart phone.
COST: $25 includes use of poles
