Our Introduction to Nordic Walking course forms part of our Walk for Fitness programme. It is suitable for anyone who can comfortably walk 1K unaided. If you are unable to do this then please call us as we have another more suitable programme for you.

Using 90% of your muscles you will improve you cardio vascular fitness, burn more calories, improve your posture and help your mental wellbeing all while walking.

Session 1 (1.5-2hours) Learning the Technique. There is a maximum of 10 people in the technique class, with 2 qualified fitness walking instructors, to ensure you get personalised attention whilst you learn.

Session 2 (1-1.5 hours) Social Walk where you will be joined by regular Nordic Walkers. This gives the opportunity to practise your new skills whilst making new like minded friends.

You will be introduced to the benefits of Nordic walking and look at the difference between hiking, trekking, Exerstrider, stability and Nordic poles and the benefits each offer.

We will demonstrate the increased benefits of Nordic poles.

You will start to learn the technique of using Nordic poles to propel you forward as you walk while taking load of your legs. Gaining forward propulsion from the poles by engaging the correct upper body muscles, understanding correct posture gait and co-ordination.

Following the lesson, we will spend time to answer questions and discuss how you can continue your walking fitness journey, whether you want to join our social or fitness walks, improve your fitness through our Nordic Fit & Nordic Circuits classes or prepare for an extreme event we have a pathway to suit you. Which ever you choose we will continually help you to improve your technique and to achieve your goals.
