Nordic walking in Medway

Save this item

Nordic walking is a great form of physical activity using a pair of specially designed Nordic walking poles.

It is a safe way to improve your natural walking technique alongside fitness levels by allowing the body to work in a balanced way.

Using Nordic walking poles means your walking becomes more efficient and increases the muscles working in the upper body. This means 90% of the body’s skeletal muscles are used, turning your normal walk into an all over body workout.

We offer up to 6-weeks of training that you are required to attend before joining a Nordic walking group. The course will teach you the technique required to join our regularly Nordic walking programme.

Poles will be provided for these sessions. We also offer a fast track training session for walkers who have their own Nordic walking poles.

Benefits of Nordic walking

The benefits of Nordic walking include:

  • free walks led by trained walk leaders
  • you only need a pair of shoes (we provide the poles)
  • flat routes
  • supportive and fun atmosphere
