Pocket Health Walks
Free and friendly led walks , for people of all Ability's
- Staffordshire Place
Our health walks are led by trained volunteer walk leaders. The Walk Health walking is really easy. You do a 5 minute stroll to warm up, at least 15 minutes at a brisk pace and a five minute stroll to cool down. The walks are between 25 – 90 minutes long. Taking place at lunch times, Sundays and weekday evenings. What to expect Walk leaders will be at the meeting place before the start of the walk One leader will walk near the front of the group with the faster people. Another walk leader will be at the back with people who need to walk more slowly You can walk at a pace that suits you Expect to meet new people, make friends and enjoy yourself! What to wear/bring No special equipment is needed Wear clothing that is loose and suitable for the weather – layers are best Wear comfortable, well fitting shoes or trainers Your health For most people, the walks are beneficial and should not cause any problem. However, if you have any health concerns about increasing your physical activity, for example, if you have heart trouble, chest pain, dizziness or other pain made worse by activity, please seek medical advice before taking part. A ‘brisk pace’ will be different for everybody. Walk so you feel a little warmer, breathe a bit heavier and your heart is pumping a bit faster. You need to be able to have a chat and not be too out of breath. Go at a pace that is right for you – the walks are suitable for people of all abilities. Come when you are able to. Please check our Schedule at www.cyclisttraining.co.uk/events for our full calendar of LED walks Please note some walks are Ladies only.
