Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking, using poles in order to add two major benefits to walking:

- The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs.

- 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!

- Nordic walking not only improves your fitness but is a good way to meet new people.

 

BBC's Mike Bushell gave it a go with Nordic Walking UK in the Purbeck Hills. Check out his video here:

Philippa Porritt, of Nordic Walking UK, says participants burn 20-40% more calories than normal walking. Find out more here:

The Fitness session on Tuesday will be more of a cardio session with the focus on getting the heart rate up.
