Walks are normally 1 hour long
Nordic Walking originated in Finland in the late 1990s to keep professional cross country skiers in shape during the summer months. It is a specific fitness technique and not simply walking with poles like trekking or rambling. Nordic Training poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along and engage the upper body as well as the legs. This makes it easier to work quite hard!
Nordic Walking is simple and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. It is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who love to be in the outdoors. It aims to improve posture, release tension and strengthen the body. Nordic Walking eases pressure on the joints making it suitable for everyone who suffers with shoulder, back and knee problems. It uses 90% of muscles, burns 46% more calories than normal walking and is fantastic for the heart and lungs.
Wellness walks are for those who want a gentle, fairly easy walk to improve posture and general health.
