Take your Nordic Walking to the next level

Have you been Nordic Walking for a while and would like to take your technique to the next level?  Then this is the session for you.  You will learn the more advanced techniques that allow you to get even more out of Nordic Walking.

The Beach

As always, the best place to Nordic Walk is the beach.  So, we will be holding the session on our favourite beach, Druridge Bay at Cresswell.  At low tide this beach is wide and flat and perfect for training.

What will steps 6-10 enable me to do?

Steps 6-10 will enable you:

  • to walk faster, using more of your upper body strength to propel you forward;
  • tone and strengthen your abdominal muscles including the traverse abdominals (love handles);
  • burn more calories – 46% more calories and
  • raise your heart rate to make this a high intensity exercise without any pressure on your joints.
