Nordic walking is walking with specially designed poles, which propel the walker forwards, when the correct technique is employed. It can help you lose weight, maintain fitness levels or reintroduce you back into physical activity. Nordic Walking results in higher (approximately 20 -50% more) energy expenditure and results in more calories being burnt than when walking at the same speed.

How to get started

I teach the Nordic Walking at various locations. To see if Nordic Walking is for you why not come along to one of the free taster sessions before you commit to the full course. Once you have learnt the technique you can then join the regular Nordic Walking sessions.

Free taster sessions

The free taster session last for 45 minutes and enable you to get a feel for what Nordic Walking can do for you. The next free taster classes are on the following days and times.

Nordic Walking Tuition

If you enjoy the taster session it is essential that you learn the full and correct Nordic Walking technique by attending the Nordic Walk tuiton course. The course is structured teaching programme of two hour and a half sessions. This will help you to master the basics that will enable you to competently Nordic Walk and to attend any organised walks with us at Nordic Walking Beds and Bucks.

This will enable you to gain maximum benefits regardless of your fitness levels.

The cost for the course is £40 including pole hire.

There is absolutely no obligation to attend a course if you decide Nordic walking is not for you after the free session.

It is essential that you phone and book all the above sessions so I can reserve your poles for you
