Interested in trying Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking is a great way to exercise...

  • Burns 46% more calories than ordinary walking
  • Great for neck, shoulder and back problems
  • Easy on the knees and joints
  • Suitable for all levels
  • Sociable, safe exercise

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do twice as effective! It is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or rambling.

Nordic Walking poles add two major benefits to going for a walk, they use the upper body muscles and they propel you along, making it feel easier to work quite hard!

In order to gain maximum benefit from Nordic Walking, it is essential to learn the correct technique from a qualified Instructor who is licensed by Nordic Walking UK -
see www.nordicwalking.co.uk.

GO Active are looking to put on Nordic Walking course for beginners during the day in the week for 4 weeks and it costs just £10!

The poles will be supplied for the course.

Please register your interest by either calling Claire on 07813012722 or by emailing Claire.goodenough@westoxon.gov.uk so we start arranging a course as soon as possible!
