Join our Head of Wellbeing Alexandra for a morning walk in Battersea Park to celebrate World Nordic Walking Day on Saturday 18th of May. We will meet at Albert Gate, Battersea Park, at 10:30am and spend an hour getting to grips with the technique before making our way back to Gazelli House for a complimentary cup of our signature Rose Tea. Please allow up to two and a half hours if you will be joining us for the whole morning. RSVP to ensure your free access to our limited sets of walking poles, or feel free to bring your own.
What is Nordic Pole Walking?
Nordic Walking is an activity that is based on your most natural way of moving-walking. Just by adding especially designed, light Nordic walking poles with a special grip and strap that stays attached to your hand as you walk, you will benefit from:
Improving your range of motion in the upper girdle
Reduce stress on the joins in the lower body
Correct body alignment and correct posture
Burn up to 46% more calories in comparison to regular walking
Activate up to 96% of your muscles
Gives you extra stability, you have extra two support points as you walk
Does wonders to your upper arms, no more ‘bingo wings’
Is a great mood booster! Look up and smile!
Used in physiotherapy as a perfect way to exercise cardiovascular system
You walk..further! Studies show that the distance covered while walking with
poles is at least 20% further in comparison to the original walk
Symmetrical and complete training of the whole body
The intensity of every single Nordic Walking training can be easily adapted for
individual needs and fitness levels
*Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.
