What would I need to Wear?
All you really need is to dress appropriately for weather on the day and take a spare layer if you think you may need it. Ideally clothing should be comfortable and something that would dry quickly. No need to buy designated walking or fitness wear initially but do avoid tight clothing/jeans.
Footwear needs to comfortable - flexible soled trainers or walking boots are ideal (especially if they are waterproof) but avoid solid heavy walking boots if possible.
A small backpack or waistbag is a good idea and you should always bring a bottle of water even on chilly days. In hot weather don’t forget to pop on some sunscreen and a hat or visor is always a good idea.
Will I need to buy any equipment?
All Instructors provide poles or other kit for any drop in and beginner sessions that may require them. Once you have experienced some of our sessions you may feel you would prefer to have your own poles or other kit and that’s fine too. In fact, you will be able to access far more sessions if you do not have to rely on the Instructors to provide it.
You will be given plenty of advice as to what is right for you and access to discounts in our store too.
