Dear INWA members,
It is a hard time now everywhere in the world. The Corona virus is as active as it can be and takes a lot of victims. This is very regrettable, and we really feel sorry for those who have relatives or friends who are victims. All countries are affected and after China, especially Italy, Spain and France are facing hard situations. We do hope you and your friends and families will be safeguarded from this terrible situation. We as INWA also must stay a little reserved. Always follow the advice you get from your government in this. However, we are glad that Nordic Walking is an activity that can be done solo. We are lucky to have a sport that can continue in this bad time. We can go out with our poles, take deep breaths of healthy fresh air and train our muscles. The stronger and healthier we are, the less risk we have.
Therefore, the INWA slogan for the coming weeks is to encourage your walkers to go out and …….. NORDIC WALK SOLO!
Additionally, you can give them some warming up or cooling down exercises.
Make a promotion for this topic: our International Trainer Naohiro already did in his video for JNFA.
