Nordic Walking

Learn to Nordic Walk and turn every walk into a workout!

Nordic walking was originally used by elite cross country skiers as a way to stay in top shape throughout the summer months. Now it has grown into a popular way for people of all ages and fitness levels to gain fitness, tone up, lose weight and improve their health. 

Unlike when trekking, Nordic Walking poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along. This engages the upper body and makes you feel lighter on your feet, which has 4 major advantages:

  • You use 90% of your major muscles so your upper body gets toned as well as your legs and butt!
  • You can burn 20 - 40% extra calories by using the poles - this can really help with weight loss. 
  • It take the pressure off your knees and joints and is great for back and neck problems.
  • You can get the most out of even a fairly short walk!

In order to gain maximum benefit from Nordic Walking it is essential you learn the correct technique.
