Walking as a moderate endurance acivity is the joint-friendly alternative to running or jogging. Due to the efficient rolling of the feet over the heels, joints (knee and hip joint) are only minimally loaded. For newcomers to physical activity or someone who wants to get back into an active lifestyle, walking offers an optimal way to increase endurance and strength. The island of Fuerteventura is an ideal platform for walking, which is mainly practiced outdoors. The incomparable landscape, its spaciousness and the year-round mild climate make outdoor physical activity an unforgettable experience.
In the course you will get to know the right technique as well as different types of endurance training. In addition, the foundation is laid for independent, health-oriented training at home. The foundation for more balance in your everyday life and your fitness!
Walking is certified by the Central Testing Office for Prevention (ZPP) in Germany. They work together with German health insurances to support prevention services for primary prevention.

After each course, there is a small stretching unit to maintain and improve the flexibility of the muscles. In addition to the pilates and walking classes, you will have a one hour of stretching with Laerke. The stretching relaxes the muscles and fascia and can have a calming and relaxing effect on body and mind.
Fuerteventura, especially the north of the island offers a perfect platform for many outside activities, on water or on land. For example you can use you free time for a little hike exploring one of the stunning vulcanos. Included in the package of this retreat is one vulcano walk together with the group and a guide.
