Originally a summer training regime for cross-country skiers in Finland, Nordic Walking is an enhancement of your natural walking posture. Using specially designed walking poles, similar to ski poles, the Nordic Walking technique makes something we do naturally, twice as effective by engaging 90% of your major muscles! The poles help to tone the core, to work the arms and also propel you forward to walk quicker!
In order to gain maximum benefit from Nordic Walking it is essential to learn the correct technique from a qualified Nordic Walking instructor.
Nordic Walking turns your natural walk into a workout. The poles enable you to use 90% of your muscles (95% if you chat with a friend)!
You can find information here on Technique courses and regular Adventure, Gentle Adventure and Wellbeing walks which take place in a variety of locations in and around Worksop.
