About Nordic Walking

Nordic walking is a weight bearing exercise which uses up to 90% of the body's muscles. Not only is it a great for helping people get fitter and stronger, but it also improves mental well being.

 

Our Nordic Walking instruction is tailored to give individuals the best possible outcome in posture walking, speed and distance. It is also a great outdoor social activity and a good way to make new friendships.
