|TIP-TOP TECHNIQUE - SESSION OVERVIEW
The session has been designed to assist you in developing/improving and refining your Nordic Walking Technique.
The key to this improvement is enabling you to see, for yourself, those technique niggles that your instructor often highlights on your regular sessions, and to give the instructor 1-2-1 time to spend with you, highlighting your individual areas for improvement, and providing you with support to help you progress.
The ultimate aim is that you continue to progress, avoid injury, and enjoy the full range of benefits that Nordic Walking offers.
The group will be kept to two per session, to provide individual attention.
The format of the session is outlined below:
The session will be tailored to your personal technique challenges/requirements. It will involve taking a short video(s) of your technique. ONLY YOU, will see the video(s) and/or photos. These will never be shared with anyone else, without your explicit permission to do so.
During the session, your instructor will review this video with you, highlighting the areas of technique where improvement/progress can be made.
We cannot express enough how incredibly effective video is at highlighting these areas, a picture (or video) really does paint a thousand words!
Photo’s may also be taken out of the video, to further assist your instructor in clearly highlighting to you the areas for improvement. Your instructor will then provide you with steps/drills to practice, both alongside your instructor, and alone (allowing you to digest the information).
If you wish, your video can be provided to you, so you may review it further at home. You will be asked if you would like us to retain the video, for the purposes of reviewing it with your instructor, at a future date, to monitor improvements made, following the development session and your own additional practice. Again, this would only be held with your permission, the video will of course be deleted, if preferred.
If there is a particular area of technique you wish to work on in your session, please could you outline this to your Instructor in an email (to email@example.com) prior to your session (at least a week in advance).
We appreciate you may feel nervous or self-conscious about being filmed (we felt exactly the same when we were filmed!), but please do not worry, our only desire is to support you and help you to develop your Nordic walking technique, NOT to embarrass or demoralise you in any way.
