Nordic Walking is one of Europe's fastest growing forms of physical activity and is particularly suited for people 50+.
Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking:-
1. The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs.
2. The poles help to propel the walker along - this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!
