CategoryHealth and wellbeing
OverviewThis session is taking place every Wednesday starting at either 12.10pm or 5.30pm. The 12.10pm session will meet outside the Silberrad building, whilst the 5.30pm will meet outside the Security and Safety Centre. The session is delivered by a qualified Nordic Walking Instructor and is a low impact walking exercise that involves the use of walking poles. Along with getting your heart rate up, Nordic walking is a full-body exercise that uses special poles to activate your upper body as you walk and great workout for those who have joint issues such as arthritis. These sessions are aimed at all abilities, and you will be taught the correct technique before setting off and enjoying the scenery around campus. Walking poles will be provided but you should ensure you wear comfortable clothing and suitable walking shoes or trainers. You must ensure for the first session you have completed a health declaration, which you can access by emailing ohquery@essex.ac.uk. Please bring this with you to your first session.
