Join us on the Santa Monica Beach on Saturday, September 19 when SingularCity member Malin Svensson, an internationally known fitness coach and fitness author, will lead a Nordic Walking Class, and show us how to use poles to get a full body workout that burns up to 46 percent more calories than regular walking without increased exertion.
You may have seen people using poles when hiking. That’s called trekking and the purpose is to get support and stability. When those poles are used to get a full body workout, it’s called Nordic Walking. It doesn’t matter what surface you choose – you can start right outside your doorstep and get a full body workout. The only thing you need are poles and correct technique.
The 30-minute introductory class starts at 8:30 am and usually costs $25 — but for SingularCity members it’s FREE. You only need to RSVP by Thursday September 17 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know your height in order for them to bring the correct size of poles.
Stay for the 9 am workout, which starts off with a nice warm-up followed by a fun, 45-minute walk and ends with a wonderful stretch. The workout is 1 hour and costs $20 but this too will be FREE for SingularCity members — as long as you RSVP by the deadline.
Not a member? You can still join us. The cost is $20 if you are not a SingularCity member — still a great deal because you saw it here.
Nordic Walking takes fitness walking to a new level. It increases your endurance, strengthens your core, arms, chest, back, buttocks and legs, improves your posture and flexibility and it takes stress off your ankle, knee and hip joints.
Poles are provided. All fitness levels are welcome. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes earlier to find parking. Come with your hands free because you will hold on to poles in each hand.
Meet at Perry’s Café at 2600 Ocean Front Walk, Santa Monica, CA 90405. Best parking is at Parking Lot No. 5.

A well-deserved lunch will follow at Perry’s.
