Nordic Walking

A whole body exercise that harnesses the benefits of walking with the use of Nordic walking poles. Learn how to walk with ease, becoming faster and walking further, whilst also having fun.

Walks usually take place on alternate Mondays and Tuesdays with optional Saturday and evening walks, depending on what you want. All week day walks are between 3 -4 miles and finish with a coffee and chat.

A taster session and instruction will be required to ensure you are walking correctly to get maximum benefit.

Update: due to restrictions imposed during the Covid-19 pandemic we are holding only small group walks with our regular walkers. Induction sessions can also be arranged.

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.
