Nordic walking

Nordic walking was originally a summer training regime for cross-country skiers. It's based on using specially designed walking poles in a way that harnesses the power of the upper body to propel you forward as you walk. It is now a recognised way to turn a walk into whole-body exercise that can be done by anybody, anywhere.

Nordic walking is a full-body exercise that's easy on the joints and suitable for all ages and fitness levels, but it is always recommended that you have your emergency contact information on you or on your mobile phone.

You will need to attend a Taster Session to learn the Nordic Walking Technique, for which there is a small change, which includes use of the poles. You will need to purchase Nordic Walking poles and information about what to purchase and videos on the walking technique are available on the following websites:

We will be using footpaths and trail paths for which some sections may be muddy, slippery, wet and uneven. For your own safety please make sure you wear suitable footwear, take care on or near roads and on uneven ground. Remember that other walkers, runners, cyclists, pedestrians, dogs, children and wildlife may use the same paths and there may be obstacles such as branches. 

When you become a member of the LALG Nordic Walking Group you will automatically be added to our membership database and a group email list, which will be used to contact you about planned walks or other activities. The Group leader will manage the membership database.
