Enjoyed walking over lockdown, want to progress this more?

Come and learn how to turn walking into a total body exercise with poles. Get more from walking in your own time or join our regular fitness walking classes. In line with Government guidance and our own updated risk assessment protocols, we can now offer the beginners' Power of Poles workshop for up to 6 participants at a time.

We are able to loan poles on this beginners' workshop and we have strict cleaning procedures in place. To maintain equipment cleanliness, we cannot loan poles for regular classes. Please get in touch if you'd like to buy poles.

Once you've completed the Power of Poles, you will be entitled to free Nordic Walking UK membership and will be entitled to the members' prices on the Nordic Walking UK store - ask for details.

Please ensure you bring a small backpack/bumbag with water and a snack if required.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch - just click on Contact above for mobile phone and email details.

The session takes place at Savernake Forest Postern Hill - this is a popular area so we ask that you respect the space of others and park respectfully. We meet at the area at the end of the turning circle which is the first MAIN parking area on your right as you enter the forest.

When joining us, we ask you to read and agree to the safety measures below. We need to be respectful to other forest users and need to recognise that some people are very nervous.

Collectively, we can demonstrate and reassure others of our safe practices. COVID-19 safety measures: Our new online new health questionnaire asks you to update your current health status.

If you feel unwell between booking your class and joining us, we ask that you err on the side of caution and cancel your booking. You will be recredited to book another date or a refund can be issued.

Please remain at least 2m away from all other participants. We will remind you! We are planning our routes to best avoid other park users.
