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.
