Nordic Walking is the latest innovation in fitness walking and in Ireland there is growing interest in 'using the sticks for a fitness fix'! It can be done on virtually any outdoor terrain including tarred roads, concrete paths, forestry trails, sandy beaches, and grassy parks. 

What to bring:
  • Comfortable shoes or runners

  • Warm and comfortable clothes

  • A can do attitude

 
Nordic Walking transforms 'normal' walking (where most of the work is done by the legs) into a complete body workout! Studies have found that the correct use of poles can increase intensity and burn as much as 40% more calories than 'normal' walking. Walking with Nordic Poles also helps to:

Benefits:
  • increases muscle strength
  • improves posture and neck/shoulder stiffness. 
  • reduces impact on joints
     

Leki poles are highly engineered, lightweight, and come in 'fixed length' and 'adjustable'.  The Trigger Grip system makes handling safe and comfortable.
