The popular weekly Nordic Pole Walking sessions offered by the Community Care Health & Care Network have resumed for the spring and summer in Lindsay and Bobcaygeon.
Free pole walking is held on Mondays at 9:30 a.m. from the Wilderness Trail in Bobcaygeon, and on Fridays at 9 a.m. from Nayoro Park in Lindsay (holidays excepted). Certified instructors lead the groups and poles for participants who do not have their own are available on a limited basis.
Community Care has offered Nordic Pole Walking programs for several years. The activity has been shown to burn much more energy than normal walking, it uses 90 % of the body’s muscles, is a low-impact exercise and a great social activity.
People interested in taking part in the weekly sessions should register by contacting Community Care’s Health Promoter Jordan Prosper at 705-324-7323 ext 186, or e-mail at email@example.com. Further information about Nordic Pole Walking is available at www.ccckl.ca.
