Background

Nordic Walking is an enhanced walking technique that uses poles to work your upper body as well as your legs. It provides a highly effective, full body workout that doesn’t feel like one! Originating in Finland, Nordic Walking combines the simplicity of walking with core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing.

Nordic Walking provides a number of benefits above that of normal walking. It exercises 90% of your muscles, increasing strength in your legs, arms, shoulders, chest and back. Using poles not only helps burn more calories but also reduces the impact on your joints.

Our Trinity Active Travel Hub sessions are aimed at beginners who would like to learn about Nordic Walking.

Each session includes:
Introduction to Nordic Poles
Basic Nordic Walking Techniques
Warm up
Led Walk. Our walks are roughly 2 miles long and can be tailored to each group depending on experience and fitness
Cool down stretches
