How & Why I Started Nordic Walking

“Take up Nordic Walking?  No Way!”  I said.

When I returned to the UK in 2010 after working and living overseas, I was recommended by my peers to add Nordic Walking to my instructor tool box.

I was totally not interested in walking with poles….until I tried it. I was amazed at what a good workout it was and how it made regular walking so much easier… The rest is history.

I now use my poles religiously when I go on challenging walks and have been teaching Nordic Walking for over 10 years.

Where Does Nordic Walking Come From?

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).
