What Is Nordic Walking?

Nordic walking poles propel you forward helping you walk further, faster, and with greater efficiency, giving you a whole-body workout.

Your upper body, via your shoulders and arms, combine with your legs to drive you forward.

Nordic walking offers a low impact exercise suitable for pretty much everyone – if you can walk and swing your arms you can learn to nordic walk.

What’s more, nordic walking gets you outdoors. You get the health and wellness benefits of getting out in nature with lots of fresh air while enjoying some of our local greenspaces.

Join our regular walks and you’ll make friends too!

Four wheel drive for walking

You may have heard about the great fitness benefits of nordic walking or that it makes the perfect cross-training activity for runners, cyclists, and swimmers.

You might be a fell or trail runner and seen other runners using nordic walking poles. Using nordic poles on your runs will boost your fitness and develop your trail skills.

Or simply, you long to get out more in beautiful surroundings with your family and friends.

No matter what your aspirations or motivations Helen and I are here to help you.

It’s like having two engines to power your walk
