Nordic Walking is the fastest growing recreational fitness activity in the civilised world.
When I first tried Nordic Walking I was amazed at what a good workout it was and how much fun I had in such a short period of time.
I am now hooked on this highly enjoyable activity knowing that it is something I can do well into the later years of my life and am passionate about passing it on to the community.
Nordic Walking owes it roots to cross country skiing, used as a summer training exercise for skiers to maintain their fitness during the snowfree months. But don’t panic! It is as easy or as hard as you want to make it! However, it is important to be taught the correct technique using proper Nordic Walking poles in order to enjoy effective and safe walking (see course information below).
