Join the thousands of people who have benefited from the new cross-training technique of Nordic Walking. Evolving in Norway and Finland, Nordic Walking was developed to complement winter sports such as skiing in the summer months. The sport is popular in Scandinavia and Germanic countries and is spreading throughout the UK in areas including Scotland, Wales and Devon and Cornwall where specialized courses are now being developed.
Nordic Walking differs from regular mountain walking because it provides a cardiovascular work out and strengthens arm and leg muscles with the use of specially designed poles. Described as being similar to the intensity of running, Nordic Walking lessens the pressure on joints such as knees, reduces leg strain and improves stamina and breathing.
