Nordic Walking in Wylam

If you would like to learn to Nordic Walk or develop your technique.  If you enjoy walking with a group of like minded people and enjoy the beauty of the Wylam area. Then why not join us on Thursday 5 December at 2.30 pm

Sessions and walks will be provided by Julie, the owner of Strolls With Poles.  Julie has been Nordic Walking since 2005 and is an experienced Nordic Walking Instructor, so you are in good hands.

The format for the sessions will include:

      • Provision of a set of poles (properly set up according to your height) – if needed (poles provided free of charge);
      • A warm up session;
      • Instruction, as required, on the INWA 10 Step Method ™;
      • A 3-4 mile walk; and
      • A cool down/stretching session.

Beginners to Nordic Walking often have questions about it, so we have tried to answer some of the typical questions that people ask.  You can find these in the “Questions” tab above, so why not take a look.

Please contact us if you have any other queries or questions.

Strolls with Poles – Nordic Walking for Fun and Fitness



What is Nordic walking?

We wrote a blog entitled “What is Nordic walking?” to explain what Nordic Walking is and the benefits to you.

Why are we walking on the grass?

Grass is an excellent surface to learn the INWA 10 Step Method™ for a few reasons:

  1. The surface is usually flat with no obstacles, which means your posture remains correct without worrying about tripping over;
  2. When placing your pole behind you it is much easier to get good purchase to push through the strap to assist your technique; and
  3. You will have beautiful scenery.

What do I need to bring?

On our website we have a FAQ (Frequently asked questions) section that will provide you with more information.
