The basic Nordic walking course lasts two months and is held in the woods near Hilversum on Saturday morning.
In two training sessions you learn the technique of walking with long steps, using the Nordic walking sticks. This is initially quite strenuous, so we take time to build up our physical fitness during the training. A training session lasts 1,5 to 2 hours, starting with a warm-up followed by an interval training or long-distance endurance walk, and ending with a cool down. We improve our walking technique during the training.
After the initial training sessions you can join an existing group, where you improve your technical skills under the supervision of a trainer. The groups vary in level, depending on technical skills and walking speed.
For GAC members participation is free of charge. Non-members pay €30,00 for two months.
You can hireNordic walking sticks for the length of the basic course, paying a deposit of €35,00 when you enroll.
Who can join
GAC members and non-members can join the Nordic walking course. The minimal requirement is that you can walk for one hour at 5 km per hour.
After the basic course you can join a suitable group at your level, based on technical skills and speed. The groups continue to work on technique, but the accent is more on physical fitness. We also enjoy exploring the beautiful nature around Hilversum.
