What is Nordic Walking?
Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to enhance your natural walking experience. With a technique that is similar to the upper body action of classic cross country skiing, Nordic Walking becomes a genuinely whole body exercise that can be enjoyed at many levels, from steady Wellbeing walks to Stamina, Endurance & more vigorous Fitness walks.

Nordic Walking is actually good fun and we all have such a laugh, we are one big family who all have the same goal and that is to get fit & lose weight whilst meeting new people & having fun in the great outdoors.
Nordic Walking Northampton is the best place to learn all aspects of Nordic Walking. I offer exceptional training and lots of regular walks at popular times throughout the day and weekends, and with 3 walk times to choose from in the week at 10am, 1.30pm and 6pm & then 9.15am at the weekends there should be something to suit you.
When you walk with Nordic Walking Northampton you get Instructor led walks & regular drills built into the session so you are constantly improving your technique. I am insured and 1st Aid Trained.
Best of all I have the patience of a saint and a calmness about me that will help you feel relaxed & confident in your own ability. The rest of my walkers are a good friendly bunch too who are really sociable so you will never be short of someone to chat to. We always walk as a group & no one is ever out of my vision so you will never be left behind. All my walks are graded so there is a walk for everyone.
Nordic Walking Northampton is run by myself (Kev) who after a serious accident at the school I worked at as a Behaviour Specialist left me with 3 prolapsed discs. I was incapacitated for 2 years and taking lots of medication for the pain. I had ballooned to 27 stone so understand fully what it is like to feel miserable and unfit. I was told I may never walk again if I had the operation they were proposing and thats when I discovered and started Nordic Walking. I found it helped me so much that I trained to become an Instructor and have proved the doctors and surgeons all wrong as I never had the operation. I am now 6st lighter, off all my meds and walk over 30 miles a week, and feel amazing for it, so no EXCUSES, if I can do it so can you.
