5 REASONS TO NORDIC WALK

  1. Everyone can try it – As Nordic Walking is based on the natural movements of walking, it’s a very accessible activity that people with different fitness levels can share.
  2. Mental wellbeing – The positive connection between exercise and reducing stress and anxiety is well known. Add to that being outdoors in nature along with the social aspect of Nordic Walking and you can see how it adds up to a winning combination.
  3. Using the great Nordic Walking pole technique will burn more calories than walking without poles.
  4. Stay healthy – Nordic Walking exercises 90% of your muscles.
  5. Reduces joint impact – by using the specifically designed poles, Nordic Walking minimises joint impact, making it great for prolonged activity, or if recovering from too much running.
