You are currently viewing Nordic walk your way to your New Year Fitness Goals

Christmas is traditionally a time for indulgence and the New Year one for resolutions!  If you are thinking about what changes you can make to your lifestyle, adding exercise is one of the biggest steps you can take in improving your health. I hope that those of you who have been Nordic walking with us during 2015 will feel rightly pleased with your fitness and the improvements you have seen in your general health as well as muscle tone and cardio vascular fitness. 

Walking is one of the most effective, natural, accessible and safest forms of exercise we can do – and below is a brief re-cap of some of the blogs I’ve written over the last twelve months endorsing this statement.  But why just walk when you can Nordic walk?!  As those of us who already Nordic walk can tell you, adding a pair of poles turns your walk into a workout. It becomes a total body exercise, burning up to 46% more calories than ordinary walking and using 90% of your muscles.  It’s great for reducing neck and shoulder tension, strengthening your core and relieving back soreness.  Finally, it’s sociable, tones and trims your whole body, and boosts your mood.  With around 25 walks a week to choose from, including evenings and weekends, we have made it easy for you to build exercise into your life.  So, if you’ve not tried Nordic walking before, now’s the time to give it a go!

Don’t forget our regular classes finish this Wednesday 23rd December and start again on Saturday 2nd January.  Wishing you all a very happy Christmas!
