Nordic Walking really is for everyone and uses specially designed poles to enhance your natural walking experience. The poles mean that effort is shared between the upper and lower body and it actually feels easier than normal walking, particularly uphill. Nordic Walking puts less strain on joints than other activities and can be very effective for people with mobility issues or those recovering from illness or injury. It’s also not all about speed, walking a little slower is a great calorie burner whilst walking faster increases your fitness.
