Nics Nordic Walks

Ever heard of ‘Nordic Walking’? No, we hadn’t either until we were introduced to Nic’s Nordic Walks, and now we’re hooked! Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique, using the upper body equally as hard as the lower bod helping to propel up those Lakeland Fells, and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running Nordic Walking increases your fitness levels so much so that you will burn 46% more calories than normal walking as well as reducing pressure off your lower limb joints.

It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing, and is really great fun!  The new ‘Gym Without Walls’!
