“No way!” I said. “I don’t need, or want, to walk with poles!”
This was my reaction when I returned to England in 2020, after working most of my life overseas and my colleagues in the fitness industry recommended that I add Nordic Walking to my business business.
Now ‘freedom’ had always been my motto and what I have always been in search of. I chose snowboarding over skiing so that I could free up my arms and enjoy the ride. So, why would I want to limit my arm movement whilst walking, thereby reducing my sense of freedom whilst out in nature?
However, if there’s one thing I’ve learnt in my life, and that is – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
So back in 2010 after putting up much resistance to peer pressure, I finally succumbed to try a Nordic Walking taster session.
WOW, as soon as I strapped into the poles, felt the contact with the pole on the pavement and experienced a total body connection… I was hooked.
What’s stopping you Nordic Walking? Do you associate walking poles with disability? Do they represent a loss of freedom whilst walking?
Well, contrary to what a lot of people think, I discovered that nordic Walking actually enhances the freedom experience of my walks. Nordic Walking poles, combined with the Nordic Walking technique, enabled me to walk faster, further and experience a full body workout all at the same time.
What’s not to love about that?
Based upon my own experience that of the many people I have taught to Nordic Walk over the past 13 years, I highly recommend joining my next Learn to Nordic Walk course which starts this Friday, 14th July.
