The most common question from new walkers is “Where are the groups?” It’s always more fun with a group and Nordic Walkers are no exception. To be successful with a new activity you need a buddy and a schedule so why not make it 5 or 10 or 20 buddies?
This month we have kicked off Nordic walking programs in Edina, Fridley and Brooklyn Park. The Introductory programs were very well attended and based on the energy of the group everyone had a great time. They all have Nordic walking groups on their calendar now, joining Maple Grove 757 Nordic Walkers and Hoigaard’s Nordic Walking Tuesdays. Eden Prairie is adding Nordic Walking to their Fitness in the Park programs and Pedal and Roll and Stroll for Parkinson’s has walks coming up as well. My calendar shows my own walks in St Cloud and Cold Spring. There’s lots going on out there so hopefully there’s one close to you!
I’m trying to get information on all of them on my calendar but for now use the links to contact the various programs for more information! FYI all of these programs have poles for you to use during the walks. If you join them and want to buy your own poles I have a good selection in stock right now.
