Nordic Walking UK

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking

  • The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs
  • The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!

Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.

What would I need to Wear?

All you really need is to dress appropriately for weather on the day and take a spare layer if you think you may need it.

Footwear needs to comfortable - flexible soled trainers or walking boots are ideal (especially if they are waterproof) but avoid solid heavy walking boots if possible.

A small backpack is a good idea and you should always bring a bottle of water.

Will I need to buy my own poles?

All Instructors provide poles for taster sessions and technique courses. Many Nordic Walkers prefer to have their own poles once they have completed the technique course. Your Instructor will also provide them on regular walks (although you may need to book them), so there is no need to rush into buying anything.

If you do decide to buy any poles or equipment your Instructor will be more than happy to give you some advice.
