Nordic Walking has grown into a popular way for people of all ages and fitness levels to gain fitness, tone up, lose weight and improve their health. Unlike when trekking or rambling, Nordic Walking poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along. This engages the upper body and makes you feel lighter on your feet, which has four major advantages.
- You use 90% of your major muscles so your upper body gets toned as well as your legs and backside!
- You can burn 20–40% extra calories by using the poles – this can really help with weight loss
- It takes the pressure off your knees and joints and is great for back and neck problems
- You can get the most out of even a fairly short walk!
We have a specialised team of instructors ready to deliver the course on behalf of our guests for that weekend only.
The training day will get you to go for Nordic walks on your own and you will be given a certificate and what is known as a ‘freedom card’ which enable you to do this walking all over the UK. All people who complete the day will also be given a further 15% discount on any poles if purchased direct from our instructor, Mark Phillips.
The course is available for £79.00 per person (reduced from £99.00!) for the whole day.
To book or enquire on the course please contact Mark Phillips at Nordic Walking on Tel: 07765 138475 or Mike on 07826 122887 and call Poppy to make a booking at Uplands.
