I have been cross country skiing for over forty years and would regularly take my poles when going for walks at any time of the year when there wasn’t any snow.
The fact that all I need is a good pair of Nordic Walking poles (and trainers or walking boots) and a simple walk would turn into an effective exercise session, whether in company or alone.
What I really love about it, is that you can pitch it at whatever level YOU want. Whether that be enhancing a gentle stroll or adding to a performance fitness regime and all points in between. And you can do it whenever you want.
I trained and worked as an occupational therapist in various areas over the years and was involved with Snowsport Scotland with the Nordic discipline for some time.
If you would like to try Nordic Walking, and there isn’t a Taster Session or Learn to Nordic Walk courses planned, e-mail ot text me and we can arrange a suitable date, time and venue for an introduction to this great activity.
