Program

A Nordic walking session is always done in three stages.

  1. A warm-up lasting 10 to 15 minutes is designed to prepare the body for the effort that will follow. It is composed of several exercises that the instructor will make evolve with each session.
  2. The body practice lasting from 1 to 1h30 will alternate between pedagogical group time and practice time. The instructor will be there to advise you and correct you to help you progress. During this bodybuilding session, through several exercises, we will be able to tackle very different themes such as: coordination, balance, flexibility, breathing, playfulness, bodybuilding, endurance/cardio, ascent and descent techniques, proprioception, obstacle crossing...
  3. Stretches lasting 10 to 15 minutes are very important. They allow the muscles, tendons and ligaments to regain their physiological balance and work on flexibility.
