Our special One day Learn to Nordic Walk program is designed to ensure you understand and can apply the foundation skills of Nordic walking. It is perfect for you if you can walk briskly for a couple of hours. We do have a few mini breaks to allow the mind, body and soles to catch up with this exhilerating new activity.  

This special Fast Track session has been devised so that you can learn to Nordic walk in 2 hours instead of 4 weeks. Nordic Walking is a fantastic way to cross train for running, skiing, golf, tennis and other sports.

If you are active and confident that you can walk briskly during a non stop 2 hour technique tuition session – this is the one for you. 

It is essential that you book online in advance. Decent footwear with grippy soles  is suggested as well as dressing appropriately for the weather, using layers of clothing. We provide the poles.

We will ensure you learn the technique and feel confident to Nordic Walk. This special class covers the following:

Phase one - You will learn the fundamentals of the Nordic Walking technique. Gaining forward propulsion from the poles by engaging the correct upper body muscles, understanding correct gait and co-ordination.

Phase two –  Mastering handgrip and use of the pole straps in order to develop technique by adapting the body position and pole angles for walking up and down hills.

Phase three – Adding more speed through improved technique, understanding how your body reacts to exercise and learning how to stay within your comfort zone.

Phase four –  Improving posture and understanding how to use technique, distance, speed and terrain to constantly ensure you get the most out of your Nordic walking!
