Nordic Walking is guided by Nathalie from the north coast of Cornwall.
When I first trained to be a Nordic Walking instructor I was excited by the accessibility of it. It meant that I would be able to encourage people to exercise outdoors whatever their level of ability – everyone is happy to go out walking and it isn’t intimidating. At this level, I have always absolutely believed in it and could feel the benefits throughout my body even after a couple of days of taking part in the training.
In the UK, Nordic Walking is still believed to be something just for older participants and still confusion over what benefit the poles bring beyond stability, until people try it for themselves. You can read more about What is Nordic Walking and the benefits here.
