Fancy having a go at Nordic Walking? Come & try it for FREE! We currently do regular FREE Taster Sessions in Goring (by Sea Lane Cafe), Highdown Hill and Lancing. (We also do Learn To Nordic Walk Courses and have loads of regular walks to choose from!) Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do… twice as effective! Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking - it's like an outdoor cross trainer!
The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs. The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier! It's a bit like having an outdoor cross trainer!
Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body.
It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
