Nordic Walking

Nordic ‘Stride for Life’ Walking Course

This course will teach you the foundational skills of Nordic Walking and how to effectively use poles to get the most out of walking. Nordic Walking is an aerobic exercise that engages both upper and lower body muscles whilst strengthening your posture. Nordic Walking poles can be loaned for the duration of the course and must be returned upon completion.

The course runs over 2 x 30minute sessions (with a 3rd session if necessary). Session times are flexible depending on the instructor. To book a spot, please call 1800 011 041.

 Weekly Nordic Walk and Talk Groups

Join us for our weekly Nordic Walking groups! Graduates of our Nordic walking course are invited to join us for weekly group walks. Routes used are easy – moderate intensity and will be led by an instructor. Come and join us as we practice our skills and explore the coffee shops that the surrounding suburbs have to offer.

Booking a place is advised so that we can contact you in the event of bad weather. Participants are required to use their own poles and bring their own hat, water etc. Poles are available for purchase from either of our offices.
