These groups are a great workout, they are also social and a good way of developing an exercise routine. Walk plus go at a fast pace between 3.5 and 4 miles per hour, you might describe it as Power Walking! If you are not sure you can keep up with that pace then you can try one of our Walk Fitness groups who still get a good workout but the pace is slightly slower between 2 and 3 miles per hour.
How far will we walk?
The walks are between 3.5 miles and 4 miles. So you need to be able to walk a mile in around 15 minutes. With a warm up and cool down the whole session takes around 1 hour 15 mins.
Where will we walk?
We use the trails in Sutton Park during daylight hours. Evening groups use road routes around the park in Winter. Wear comfortable trainers or walking boots.
‘I have benefitted from the group, as my partner (of 9 years my junior) was walking with me last weekend and he asked why I was walking so fast!’ Lesley Morgan, age 64 years, Oct 2014
