Nordic walking is an outdoor sports activity that has developed a lot in the region in recent years. However, it requires rigorous discipline in order to avoid certain errors which may go against the hoped-for objectives. This notably involves a discovery initiation like the one offered by Sylvie Gouez this Saturday, February 19 morning in the Hyères Valley in the framework of Breizh sport attitude (BSA).
A somewhat improvised session since the activity is generally put on hold during school holidays. “That’s why I was a little surprised to see so many candidates, informs Sylvie Gouez. They were indeed seven to have made the trip. « I consider that ten is a great maximum if we want to be able to take good care of everyone, » she continues.
As with all sports, it’s about following the different stages of learning, starting with discovery, as was the case on Saturday.
A suitable material
“To become aware of the right gestures and put less stress on the joints, the poles must be adapted. Test them before buying them and not the other way around, still points out Sylvie Gouez. Then, you have to become familiar with the postures and the technical gestures”.
Occupational therapist, Sylvie Gouez would also like to offer adapted walking and welcome people suffering from chronic illnesses under prescription.
