This is a great way to recover and improve your

 fitness.

Nordic Pole Walking (NPW) is quite unique in that it provides benefits for everybody from those with medical problems to the super fit. Whatever age, fitness level or goal, - Nordic Pole Walking is suitable, effective and enjoyable. 

It can tone up both the upper and lower part of the body and can burn up to 46% more calories than ordinary walking

It can reduce the pressure on knees and joints

Great for the Heart and Lungs and ideal for neck, shoulder and back problems

Poles prople the walker along, making it easier to move faster than normal without feeling the effort.

Other Benefits

 No need to wear special exercise clothing

 Its very sociable; participants can chat as they go!

 It is easy to learn and to keep up.

It combines exercise with the nature which has been proven to boost mood

.

 Quote ...

Hi Angela, I had a great time today - The Nordic Pole Walking course was brilliant, the tea and flapjack sublime and then the chance to purchase some cards - perfect, and all in one day. All in all it was a super afternoon treat for me.

Very Best Wishes Jan
