Ever wondered what all those people with funny 'sticks' or poles are doing walking the footpaths and coastpaths of cornwall? Perhaps you have thought it very strange looking, only for the more elderly population or perhaps you have never even heard of Nordic Walking before?... Well trust me nordic walking is so much more! This is a group that gives you the chance to join a friendly social group that enjoys exercising outdoors, exploring the beautiful scenery of west cornwall and meet likeminded people. In a nutshell Nordic walking is an enhanced version of normal walking with much the same style as a cross-country skier! If done with the correct technique it is an all body workout that can burn upto 46% more calories than normal walking not to mention a whole host of other physical and psychological benefits! I have seen first hand the dramatic positive affect it has had on people with debiliating conditions such as Arthritus and Parkinsons. My names Frankie and I am a qualified British Nordic Walking Instructor and a triathlon and oudoor enthusiast! I started this group because I want to share my passion for nordic walking with others in the local area and help improve peoples health and wellbeing. The group caters for all ages and fitness levels and you dont need any fancy expensive equipment. Just turn up in warm layers, trainers or walking boots and the poles will be provided by me!
