Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking is one of the fastest growing outdoor fitness activities. Anyone who can walk can Nordic walk. Suitable for most age groups and fitness levels. Not only is it only a great fitness activity it is also sociable and fun.

Nordic walking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get fit, whether you just want a social walk or something to give you a bit more of a work out. Nordic Walking is suitable for all fitness levels and can be done almost anywhere.

Nordic Walking started in Finland as out of season training for cross country skiers and has now become one of the fastest growing recognised fitness activities around the world.

Nordic walking poles unlike the trekking poles not only give stability put also due to the plant being behind you and not in front give you forward propulsion which if the correct technique is used engages the whole of the body.
