Coach advice

"This programme is for walkers who can walk for at least one hour at 6km/h. The key is to enjoy yourself at all times, listen to your body. Before each session, take the time to warm up your muscles and joints properly by
following our advice. You can take a water bottle with you in order to have a drink whenever you feel thirsty. At the end of each session, spend a few minutes stretching. All that remains is for me to wish you a good Walking Challenge! "
