Nordic Walking and Health & Wellbeing

Nordic walking is much more effective than both natural walking and walking with trekking poles, as it simultaneously gives the body aerobic (heart & lung) and resistance (muscular strength) exercise. By improving your normal walking to make it more natural combined with learning how to propel the body forward using specialist (not trekking) poles, Nordic walking recruits more muscles throughout the body for the movement. With good technique, this makes Nordic walking much better than most other forms of physical activity at exercising the whole body. Come and have a taste … poles are provided. Comprehensive information about Nordic walking and its multiple benefits is at nordicwalkingforhealth-what-is-nordic-walking

There are four broad categories of people likely to benefit from Nordic walking. People who:

  1. are comparatively healthy, e.g. those seeking a healthier, and better quality of, life across the life course
  2. have defined health risk factors and self-reported health problems, e.g. overweight, high blood pressure, back pain and mild to moderate anxiety, depression and stress, including carers and the bereaved
  3. live with certain long-term/progressive conditions, e.g. diabetes, cancer, heart disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, asthma, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis & fibromyalgia
  4. are recovering from medical treatment/rehabilitation, e.g. for cancer, heart disease, stroke and joint replacement & similar operations.
