What is Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking has grown into a popular way for people of all ages and fitness levels to gain fitness, tone up, lose weight and improve their health. Unlike when trekking or rambling, Nordic Walking poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along. This engages the upper body and makes you feel lighter on your feet, which has four major advantages.

  • You use 90% of your major muscles so your upper body gets toned as well as your legs and backside!
  • You can burn 20–40% extra calories by using the poles - this can really help with weight loss
  • It takes the pressure off your knees and joints and is great for back and neck problems
  • You can get the most out of even a fairly short walk!

However, in order to gain the maximum benefits from Nordic Walking it is essential that you learn the correct technique from one of our qualified Nordic Walking UK Instructor who also provide a range of regular sessions which you can book online.
