A powerful total-body exercise
In brief, Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to help propel you forwards and upwards.
It comes from cross country skiing, and like skiing you’ll use your upper body muscles as well as your lower body.
Nordic walking can be used from rehabilitation all the way up to super-fitness.
This effective, fun sport is recommended by health professionals and suitable for most fitness levels.
You can also walk and talk so you’ll make a whole new circle of friends.
You’ll burn more calories than ordinary walking, shape and tone your body and improve your posture and circulation.
And as you’re outdoors you’ll feel all the powerful and calming effects of being in nature – your mind is just as important as your body.
