MERCIAN NORDIC WALKING MAY NEWSLETTER

Hi all,

Wow haven’t we had an eventful few weeks! What with working through the issues with the council and finding new venues!

Anyway, life is now good. We have Bromsgrove Cricket Club, Avoncroft, Stoke Prior Recreation Ground (and outside gym) The Ryland Centre and I am negotiating with Upton Warren.

So what news have we got:

Firstly, sad news in that due to family pressures Pam is going to hang up her nordic walking gloves from after the festival in June. (Walks already listed will go ahead). This is a huge blow to Mercian Nordic Walking but family come first. I am pleased that Pam will still be joining us on walks and social events and will very much be a part of Mercian Nordic Walking.

LEARN TO NORDIC WALK COURSES

We have many learn to nordic walk courses coming up so if you have friends or family ready to take the plunge tell them to book on.

EARLYBIRD 4 WEEK PROGRESSIVE FITNESS COURSES

These courses are becoming popular and take place indoors and are aimed at people who either like to get their exercise done early or who need to get to work. The next one starts in May and is for everyone (NO NEED TO BE A NORDIC WALKER).

FREE INDOOR CIRCUITS TASTER

We also run an indoor circuits course at noon on Tuesdays. it is fun and progressive in nature. It is nothing to be scared of. If you feel like trying it out I am offering a free taster version on 30th May bookable here:https://exercise-anywhere.com/…/33360-Ian’s-Indoor-Circuit-…

ELAINE’S WALKS

Elaine has got some great walks coming up. For example the popular Harvington loop – https://exercise-anywhere.com/…/41469-Elaine’s-Harvington-L… Elaine really does have some special stuff coming up so please support her endeavours.

PAULA & MALCOLM

Paula and Malcolm are sharing a Monday afternoon adventure walk to bring you more activities and to help Elaine and I cover Pam’s walks, area and clients.

LIMITED OFFER MONTHLY MEMBERSHIPS

MONTHLY MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME – Summer Offer 2017
Several clients have asked if we are going to start the monthly membership again. We are doing it for a very limited period.
This is where you get the following benefits included:
1. All LOCAL walks under 2 hours in duration.
2. Up to 50% off other activities not local or over 2 hours in duration.
3. Discount on non-nordic walking courses and activities.
4. One walk FREE per participating instructor throughout UK (so if you are going on holiday you can book with a local instructor and get a free walk).
THIS OFFER WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE UP TO THE END OF MAY 2017 and gives you access to LOADS of walks either included or at a discounted rate.
The price for this is £39.50 paid monthly by DD.
LOOK how much you can benefit in local walks alone (discounts on other walks and activities such at Fit For Life Courses etc will save you even more):
X 2 walks a week = £4.93 per walk
X 3 walks a week = £3.29 per walk
On a fit for life course you would save £30.
On the hill course you would save £30.
So if any non monthly members are booked on a fit for life course you could take up this option. Remove yourself from the activity and book back on again at the reduced rate. A no brainer really.
It really is a great opportunity to get walks at even better value for money.
It will not be for all but those of you who walk twice a week or more will benefit.
All you need to do is visit www.merciannordicwalking.co.uk where you can select upgrade your membership and then select “Monthly Payment”. (Minimum period 3 months then after that if you want to cancel and revert to PAYG you can with no penalty).
Please don’t miss out on this limited duration offer IF it will save your money.
