I am the local Nordic Walking instructor and frequently run beginners classes as well as regular sessions and for those who are not quite sure if its for them I run free taster sessions too.
Nordic walking is a fun and sociable way of getting fit and is suitable for all abilities, for those who are new to exercise,recovering from illness/injury, those who have weight concerns and Olympic athletes.
Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles in order to add two major benefits to walking.
The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs.
The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!
Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
