What is Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world – and it’s easy to see why.

It takes the familiar, everyday activity of walking and transforms it into an innovative fitness technique that is twice as effective. What’s more, it is accessible to all fitness levels, can be done anywhere and does not require any expensive clothing or equipment.

Nordic Walking offers a host of benefits and, when practised correctly, is a full health technique that ensures that the whole body is working efficiently.

The technique incorporates the use of two poles, which greatly enhance the level of exercise involved in the activity. Through the use of a specific and carefully developed technique, the poles increase the use of the upper body muscles ensuring that they are worked as hard as the legs. In addition to this, they also help to propel you along, providing all of the support that you need.

Why Nordic Walking? Nordic Walking offers an extensive range of benefits, including the following (and many more!):

  • Calorie burning – Nordic Walking burns up to 46% more calories compared to ordinary walking.
  • Mood boosting – Nordic walking allows you to exercise in beautiful natural surroundings, boosting your mood and wellbeing as well as your fitness levels.
  • Muscle working – the technique tones both the upper and lower body at the same time and uses 90% of the skeletal muscles.
  • Friend making – this easy to learn and keep up activity is also very sociable, you can talk and chat as you walk.
