Do you like walking?

Would you like to increase your exercise levels through walking, walk with a social group, burn more calories, walk further for longer, then Nordic Walking on Dartmoor is for you.

Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to help enhance your natural walking, by planting the poles behind you to propel you forward - unlike Trekking where your poles are generally in front of you being used more for balance - benefits for health:

Help relieve pain in joints- arthritis, joint replacements
Opens up the chest- helps breathing related conditions, COPD, asthma
Mental health improvement through exercise plus the extra benefit of being outdoors.

How will it benefit my body?

Nordic Walking combines the simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning, similar to Nordic Skiing. The result is a full body work out, which means that you:

  • burn up to 46% more calories
  • release tension in the neck and shoulders
  • improve your posture and gait
  • strengthen your back and abdominals
  • reduce the impact on the joints

And because Nordic Walking doesn't feel like hard work, you will be happy to walk further for longer.
