Nordic walking is an enjoyable fitness session for all ages and abilities. It’s one of the best cardiovascular and toning exercises there is.

Nordic walking can be done anywhere – no need for hills, country paths, or even snow! Using the poles, you can tone the upper and lower body at the same time. You’ll burn nearly twice as many calories as ordinary walking.

So come along to our FREE friendly groups for an enjoyable session to improve your health and fitness. Nordic walking poles are provided, and the walks are suitable for all ages and abilities. All you need is sensible footwear and outdoor clothing.

There are 2 walks to choose from. One walk is about 45minutes long and will suit people who are new or just getting back to walking. The other walk is about 1-1/2 hour and is at a faster pace. Both walks cover good footpaths and muddy fields in wet weather.

Children over the age of 8 years are allowed on the Nordic walks but must be accompanied by a responsible adult and always supervised.

Please note: Children’s poles are not supplied at present.
