Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking - it makes something we can all do...twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order 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 walking 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.
