Technique

The Nordic Walking technique is a mirror image of cross-country skiing. The forward movement is created by a long, strong stride supported by active arm motion. There is a common misconception that Nordic Walking is just like regular walking, with poles as a stabilizer.

However in order to gain the full benefits of this new exercise a proper technique is essential. A long, rhythmical stride, long arm swing, the active pushing and releasing of the pole, active footwork and proper posture all combine to achieve the full benefits of Nordic Walking.

You will learn using the 7 Step Method which breaks this natural movement down into easy to understand basics helping you build the necessary co-ordination between the upper and lower body.
