Week beginning 20 February, next Nordic Walking Technique course and no classes Thursday 23 February apart from Chairfit

Welcome to our new class members who joined us recently. My aim is to have something for everyone and for everyone to feel welcome. There are just so many benefits both physically, mentally and socially when you join fitness classes – it is just about finding the right activity for you.

The joys of Nordic Walking and our next Nordic Walking Technique course
The great thing about Nordic Walking is you really get to notice and observe seasonal changes in our lovely outdoor environment. At the moment, it is all about signs of spring. I learn something every time we go out walking from my well-informed group members. Here is a little quiz Early Spring Flowers: 13 Plants and Shrubs – Woodland Trust and more about the bird life. Nature’s calendar: February (rspb.org.uk)
Next Nordic Walking Technique course Saturday 11 March 1.30pm to book Book a class – Do Fitness with Diane Oakden

No classes Thursdays 23 February – apart from St Mary’s Chairfit
I am at the  Liverpool Walton Centre for an appointment with my MS consultant. A teacher will cover the St Mary’s Community Centre Chairfit  class at 11.15am but all other classes are cancelled that day including the evening classes.

Last Wednesday 3pm Cuerden Valley Nordic Walk on 22 February
The Wednesday afternoon Nordic Walk is going to stop temporarily until I have completed my course in Exercise for Long-Term Neurological Conditions. I need to free some study time up on Wednesday afternoon.
