Nordic Walking is a safe, natural, dynamic fun activity where the use of a specially designed pair of Nordic Walking poles is added to your regular natural walking technique.
Correct technical use of the poles helps maintain good posture and integrates the activation of your upper body into the walking, simply meaning you work more muscles at a higher rate!
Nordic Walking can burn similar amounts of calories as running, swimming or aerobics but without the effort being so noticeable.
One of the best things about Nordic Walking is that it can be done almost anywhere and in places where you would normally walk; grass, canal paths, tarmac.
We offer 2 weekly walking groups led by a qualified instructor:
Tuesday – This is a fitness walk, you should be able to walk a minimum 5 km comfortably at a reasonable pace.
Wednesday – A more slower paced and smaller distance walk. This may be more suitable for rehab purposes or lower fitness levels. This session also offers opportunities for technique review.
