Nordic4 where technique based teaching guides fitness...whatever your starting point and age.
Exercise for the body and relaxation for the mind.
Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to enhance your “walk”. Derived from cross country skiing it changes your walk into a full body workout. Inclusive, low impact and great for children and adults, it takes you into the fresh air all year round. Improving balance and co-ordination, Nordic walking tones upper and lower body, releasing tension and relaxing the mind.
Walking for well-being
What makes Nordic4 different?
We understand that not ‘one size fits all’. Everyone is different, so why should our teaching and classes be the same for all of our walkers? We give personal attention applying our knowledge and teaching to match your individual requirements, so that you can get the most from our sessions.
Some kind words...
“Discovering Nordic Walking under Emma’s helpful, watchful eye was SO helpful. I had been struggling to maintain my walking because of hip pain, but learnt so much about how to walk in a way that supported my hip and that I could incorporate into my general walking. Thank you!”Sarah Bartlett 1:1 Support Adult Taster

Dr. Thorwesten of the University of Munster, Germany, showed that muscle exertion in the arms (11-14%), core, and legs increased when walking with poles, as opposed to regular walking, and the participant’s endurance increased significantly.
