Learn to Nordic Walk

Pick up this new skill and discover a way of exercising that can make you feel fitter, more toned and full of energy. Once you've mastered the technique in a few lessons, you'll be able to Nordic Walk in town or country, at home or on holiday and either solo or with one of the fun and sociable Midlands Nordic Walking groups. With the correct technique, you can feel the whole body getting a workout, with the abs and back muscles being activated; people often comment how it loosens up their stiff back. Nordic Walking has a calorie burn of up to 40% more than ordinary walking at the same time, which means it's an easy way to lose weight. Gentle on the joints - it's the ultimate 'green exercise'.
