What is Nordic Walking? “It’s all about you” the walker.
It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive clothing or equipment. It’s fun, healthy, sociable and inexpensive. You are outdoors in the fresh air, it’s peaceful and you can experience nature in a whole different way.
Why go to the gym when you can experience a wonderful and varied outdoor walking exercise; whatever your level of fitness this is for you and you can make it as strenuous as you want it to be. Even after your first class you will feel the difference and best of all you will be smiling. Nordic walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking in that the whole body shares the workload.
The use of specifically designed poles and using the correct technique means that the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs. The poles help to propel you, forward, so you may be working harder but the poles actually make it feel easier.
To ensure you get the most out of our walks, the correct technique must be learnt. As a qualified Nordic Walking instructor I will ensure that you are taught the correct technique from warming up,right through to the cool down stage.
