Nordic Walking Come & Try Sessions


Nordic Academy is very proud to again be partnering with the Premier's Active April Campaign to get more people physcially active.

Premier’s Active April is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to promote healthy and active lifestyles and get Victorians to join in the fun of increased physical activity. 

Throughout April we'll offer Come & Try sessions in different areas for interested people to have an introduction to Nordic Walking and to try out the poles. The sessions will be run by International Nordic Walking Master Trainer Patrick Burtscher. They last for an hour and poles are provided for the session. It is essnetial that people register for the event as numbers are limited. Please note: Participants need adequate fitness levels to be able to walk continuously at a moderate pace for at least twenty minutes.
