Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique which anybody, anywhere can master and it does not require expensive equipment or clothing. It is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world and is used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and FUN!
It works because it enhances ordinary walking through the use of poles which add two major benefits to your walking experience:
- 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 that you work harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!
Walks start from Fairlop Waters and Hainault Forest Country Park. Please see the webpage for more where and when.
