Nordic4

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.

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.

Walking for well-being

Be Active

Derived from Nordic Ski-ing, Nordic Walking engages 90% of skeletal muscles, burning 46% more calories compared to normal walking at the same speed. It tones the upper and lower body, improves balance, co-ordination and core body strength. Nordic Walking is great for easing stiff joints and releasing neck and shoulder tension.

Connect

Give yourself a new experience, create headspace and time to think clearly and reflect. Meet new people and make new friends. Leave your phone and technology behind, reconnect with nature and take in the environment around you.

Learn

Learn the first 5 steps of Nordic Walking, then refine your technique to cover the full 10 step programme. Enjoy the success and benefits that the full technique provides and be proud of your achievements. Whether it’s exercise for an individual, with a friend or in a group, Nordic Walking is a sport for all.

Did you know that...?

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.

However, the benefits were seen only in those who used the correct Nordic Walking technique.
