What is Nordic Walking?

It is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking or rambling.  The poles are not planted in front of the walker but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body to propel the walker along.

What are the benefits?

  • Fantastic aerobic (cardiovascular) exercise
  • Feels easier than walking without poles
  • Marvellous weight loss activity – uses up to 46% more calories than normal walking
  • 90% of working muscles used – upper as well as lower body
  • Great for neck and shoulder tension and back strength
  • Combines mental health benefits of exercise with those of being outdoors
  • Can do it almost anywhere outdoors
  • Sociable – chat to friends and make new friend
  • Individual 1:1 and small groups catered for

Who can do Nordic Walking?

Anyone can!! It is an activity for all fitness levels, ages and health conditions – If you can walk you can ‘Nordic Walk’!

It is promoted and endorsed by many fitness instructors, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is a highly effective way to get and stay healthy.

How much does it cost?
