BACK IN THE SPRING Nordic Wellbeing -Add life to your years, not years to your life – very gentle new class on Wednesdays at 10.45 back after Easter!
Nordic walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world with over 10 million enthusiasts now regularly taking part in what was originally used by super fit cross country skiers as a way to stay fit during the summer.
It’s suitable for all ages and fitness levels, simple to learn and really sociable. By using the specially designed poles, you can use all the major muscles in the body and burn up to twice as many calories as ordinary walking but the best thing is that the poles actually propel you along so it feels easier.
The poles also reduce the pressure on the knees and joints and the gentle upper body movement is great for easing back and neck pain too. It’s so effective that it is being used for weight loss, rehabilitation and sports specific training all the over the UK and those that have tried all agree that being outdoors was energising and that they felt fantastic afterwards!
However it is not simply a case of grabbing a pair of poles and walking with them! It requires the correct technique in order to get the whole body working and it is essential you learn. I run two week 1.5 hour“Learn to Nordic Walk” classes which will ensure you get the full benefit and fastest possible results, alternatively private one hour technique sessions are available. After completing this course you will be certified competent to join a Nordic Walk – anywhere in the UK!
