Nordic Walking Break 2018 with Caroline Fisher of Nordic Walking UK (from £376)

Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th May 2018

Improve your fitness on our Nordic Walking Break - Beginner or Intermediate level - featuring Nordic Walking UK techniques.

Perhaps because it is so accessible, free of charge and just about anyone can do it, walking is often overlooked as a means of getting into shape. Surprisingly, there is a wealth of scientific research out
there to prove it can be effective for improving your fitness level and helping control your weight. And
with inclusive treatments, unlimited use of the spa and three-course dining just some of the extra
benefits of attending a walking break with us at Ragdale Hall, we're confident you'll relax and leave
us fully revitalised too.

We are offering two levels of Nordic Walking Break, both led by Caroline Fisher of Nordic Walking UK. Caroline is a highly experienced Nordic Walking UK team member who delivers NWUK's bespoke
4-Gear Programme and issues the NWUK Passport. She runs a highly regarded group in the North
West and has featured in Great Outdoors magazine. Caroline led the previous Fitness Walking Breaks
at Ragdale in 2016 and 2017.

The Beginners' Nordic Walking Break is suitable for those who are new to walking for fitness, as well as those already committed but who wish to learn new techniques to make walking more effective, and more fun! During this break you'll be offered varied sessions and techniques and, as an added benefit, you will work your way through the Nordic Walking 4-Gear Programme and go away with a Nordic Walking Freedom Passport. This will then enable you to join walks and events throughout the country organised by Nordic Walking UK, and access other membership benefits and discounts.

The Intermediate Nordic Walking Break is for those walkers who have already gained the Nordic Walking Freedom Passport with Nordic Walking UK and so have some knowledge of walking techniques. Building on this knowledge, Caroline will work with you to develop your technique further and take you to a more advanced level.

Please advise our Reservations team which level of Nordic Walking Break you would like to attend at the time of booking (remember, you must have your Freedom Passport from Nordic Walking UK if you wish to book onto the Intermediate level.)

All the activity sessions and presentations will be exclusive to those guests on the Nordic Walking Breaks. They are of course mainly outdoor sessions, so please bring enough suitable clothing and footwear for the unpredictable English weather! Poles will be provided during the sessions - or you are welcome to bring your own if you have them.

As well as the special sessions, you will have plenty of time to enjoy Ragdale's spa facilities and pools - including the new rooftop pool. You can also join other classes on our varied fitness and relaxation timetable. Ragdale is all about 'me-time' and relaxation, so you can be as active as you like - or just relax with a book between sessions in one of our beautiful lounges.

 The two-night Nordic Walking Breaks include:

• Arrive from 2pm for your first session at 3pm
• Welcome and introduction to the break including your first walking session
• Two structured Nordic Walking sessions
• A joint Group Hike on your final morning to put into practice what you have learned
