What Is Nordic Walking?

Maybe you’re carrying a little bit too much weight and are worried about your health? Perhaps you have painful, stiff knees or a crook back that prevent you from exercising or walking? Or possibly you just want a better way to get fit enjoying the outdoors rather than slaving away in a gym. Whatever your situation, Nordic Walking is the perfect way to get fit and have fun at the same time.
So what is it exactly?
Well, Nordic Walking is a unique fitness method that involves walking with specially designed poles and a learned technique to create a low stress, total body workout. It is suitable for most people and can be done on almost any surface. Put simply it’s smarter walking! And at Nordic Walking Brisbane we can assist you to buy poles that suit your needs, and teach you how to use them properly. Our friendly and helpful staff will show you how to progress from a total novice to an accomplished Nordic Walker… quickly and easily.

  • The poles and technique are an evolutionary biomechanical improvement on standard hiking poles and technique, and you can also use them on grass, pavement, trails, sand and snow.
