It is my pleasure to introduce you to our brand new Nordic Walking Instructors. I led a Nordic Walk Now ITP training on Saturday, October 13 at Struthers Parkinson’s clinic, a huge thank you to them for hosting, and had five participants complete the training. My congratulations to Desyl, DeLynn, Kay, Liz and Maria. It was a special afternoon.
I was especially excited about the many different ways that our new group is planning on sharing Nordic Walking. You can look forward to new programs for women, seniors, breast cancer survivors, Parkinson’s, and community walking groups. Just a small sampling of the many applications for walking with poles.
One of my new favorite things to do is to video walkers in my classes and clinics. As a ski instructor I always find video to be a great tool for self awareness of what I’m actually doing on the snow. We’ve found the same to be true for Nordic Walking. Please enjoy this video of the group skipping to celebrate their accomplishment and to increase their heart rate at the end of our training 🙂
The next instructor training will be scheduled for early spring. I’ll look forward to seeing many of you there!
