This course is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and general health - but you should be able to walk for around 3 miles at a reasonable pace and also be confident that you can get up and down off the ground fairly easily.
Poles and other equipment such as Smoveys® and resistance bands will be provided by the instructor suitable to your body shape, height & ability.
Please make sure you have suitable clothing and footwear for fitness activities in the open countryside. Trainers that are quite sturdy are especially suitable as we will be walking (mostly on grass and well defined paths) as well as doing fitness activities such as yoga and tai chi moves.
Walkers should also bring a small backpack with water, hat, spare clothing/waterproofs/socks, sunscreen, treatment for blisters and insect repellent and a small snack. It is much better to carry spare clothing in your backpack that tie round your waist which can interfere with the poles.
If you need any medication (such as inhalers) please make sure you carry this with you. You will be expected to complete a health questionnaire to ensure you are suitable to walk.
