Nordic walking

Nordic walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking - it makes something that we can all do twice as effective! It is a specific exercise technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hillwalking or rambling.

Nordic walking poles add two major benefits to going for a walk, they use the upper body muscles and they propel you along, making it feel easier to work quite hard.
