key elements of our work?

1. workshops & programmes

We deliver a variety of innovative and exciting one-off

workshops or 4week programmes in clubs, communities, 

and workplaces. Typically, participants learn the theory 

behind walking for fitness, and practical aspects 

such as posture, arm action, footwork and techniques.

While they generally cater for a mixed audience we have developed a range of workshops and programmes which specifically target groups such as older people, people with arthritis, etc.  (see Programmes)

 

2. leadership training 

We train both voluntary Walking Leaders and professional FitWALK Trainers.

voluntary leaders

We deliver Community Walking Leader Courses (Level 1 and 2) for the Irish Heart Foundation's Slí na Sláinte Programme. These training courses take place approximately 10 times per year and are mostly organised in conjunction with Local Sports Partnerships.  For further information contact the Slí na Sláinte Office (see Contacts

 

professional trainers

We organise training for exercise and fitness professionals on a regular basis to enable them deliver our workshops and programmes. (see Training )

3. walking gear

We test and stock fitness walking  equipment such as stepcounters and walking poles that  help you get better value from your walking. See the pages on Nordic Walking, ACTIVATORS and StepCounters.
