Nordic Walking Group & Classes

Home / Community / Sport, Health and Leisure / Nordic Walking Group & Classes
Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking - it makes something we can all do...twice as effective!  It is a specific exercise technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking 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!

Reasons to try Nordic Walking

• Burns 46% more calories than ordinary walking

• Great for neck, shoulder and back problems

• Easy on the knees and joints

• Sociable, safe outdoor exercise

• Suitable for all levels of ability

In order to gain maximum benefit from Nordic Walking, it’s essential to learn the correct technique from a qualified instructor.

We run classes and walks in central Faversham, Painter’s Forstal and on Oare Marshes.

• Nordic walking technique courses

We supply poles - just bring shoes, a jacket & your enthusiasm!
