Nordic Walking is a whole body exercise which is
associated with a number of health benefits. It makes use of
specially designed poles to enhance the natural walking experience.
It is a fun and social form of exercise and has been proven
to burn 46% more calories than normal walking.
Get Active has recently set up a series of Nordic Walking
Introduction Courses. The four week courses are FREE of charge and
a great opportunity to learn the correct Nordic Walking technique.
At the end of the four week course you then have the opportunity to
progress into the weekly Nordic Walking group.
The sessions take place at the Pavilion in Peterlee from
1:30 - 2:30pm. The next introduction course is due to start
on May 1st 2012.
