SilverFit Nordic Walking sessions will be led by experienced Nordic Walking UK trained instructors.

Sessions last an hour and will be adapted to suit all participants, irrespective of ability and fitness. Poles will be provided so participants only need to wear clothes comfortable for walking. Participants will complete a health questionnaire before starting.

Nordic Walking uses poles to 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

  • Burns up to 46% more calories than ordinary walking

  • Great for the heart and lungs
  • Ideal for neck, shoulder and back problems

  • It is easy to learn and to keep up
  • It combines exercise with nature, which has been proven to boost mood
