Functional Fitness and Ageing Well Module

WORKSHOP OUTLINE

This WALX Wellness programme was developed to ensure that those who may struggle to keep up with others on even gentle Nordic walks can enjoy an outdoor exercise class that combines balance, flexibility and vital upper body strength work. We also explore WALX poles for stability

carsThe course includes joint mobility exercises, relaxation via breathing drills and builds up gradually to improve fitness in a functional way. The strap line is:-

“Adding life to your years and not just years to your life”

Instructors who deliver this concept are trained to combine gentle pole walking with balance drills, resistance bands, smoveys and strapless walking poles to ensure there are no barriers to taking part and that each participant works according to their own level of mobility and fitness.

This course is suitable for instructors wishing to work with deconditioned customers and who have an interest in working towards an exercise referral qualification.
