Nordic Walking is an enhanced walking technique that uses poles to work your upper body as well as your legs. It gives you a highly effective all over workout that doesn’t feel like one!
Nordic Walking is a fun and social activity that can be enjoyed in town centres or open countryside throughout the year, using specially designed poles – not to be confused with trekking poles – to enhance your natural walking experience.
With a technique that is similar to the upper body action of classic cross-country skiing, Nordic Walking is a genuinely whole body exercise that can be enjoyed at many levels, at low, medium or high intensity. More than 10 million people globally enjoy this outdoor activity all year round.
