What Is Nordic Walking?
 
 
Nordic Walking is a great exercise and is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do…. twice as effective!
 
Nordic Walking uses poles to 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.
 
Nordic Walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world and is used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and FUN!
 
Nordic Walking technique MUST be learnt correctly if the participant is to get the most out of the activity – the full Health technique that ensures the whole body works efficiently is only taught by qualified Nordic Walking instructors.
