Welcome to Nordic Walking in Devon
Coming out of this latest lockdown do you feel the need to 're-activate' yourself, perhaps get outdoors and socialise a bit more? If yes why not give Nordic walking a try?
Nordic walking is a very effective way to improve your physical fitness, it's 'safely sociable' and being outdoors enables you make the most of Devon and all it has to offer.
Nordic Walking Devon is run by Fiona Swan, fully qualified Nordic Walking UK Instructor and fitness professional with over 10 years of experience of teaching and motivating individuals to keep fit and look after their health. So I hope you will join us soon, to perhaps discover Nordic walking for the first time and make a fresh start in 2021.
Please note, if you are new to Nordic walking you will need to learn the technique by either attending one of my Learn to Nordic Walk courses or have a private One to One lesson. Then join in with weekly Coast and Countryside walks or my Nordic Fitness Walks at beautiful Haldon Forest Park.
Join us soon for a warm welcome.
Fiona is also a qualified Pilates Instructor and Personal Trainer with additional qualifications in GP Exercise Referral, Pre and Post Natal exercise and 'Exercise for Lower Back Pain'.
What is Nordic Walking?
Originating from Finland in the 1930's Nordic walking is a fitness activity which engages the upper body as well as the legs when walking. By using poles to propel yourself along you can walk much faster and feel lighter.
If done correctly it's a full body workout, burning 20 -40% more calories than ordinary walking making it a great activity for overall fitness and weight loss!
Nordic walking is recommended by many health professionals, including GP's and physiotherapists as it's suitable for most levels of fitness and is very effective.
It's easy to learn and can be done by anyone, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
