    The Walters Method

    What is Nordic Walking?

    Nordic Walking, or Ski Walking is the summer training method of Cross Country Skiing. In 1997 Physiotherapists adapted this training method to suit everyone who likes walking and being active outdoors.

    Why Choose Nordic Walking?

    Nordic Walking exercises the whole body, not only the legs but it also strengthens the upper body - whilst relieving the impact on joints like ankle, knee, hip and spine.

    Nordic Walking is suitable for everybody who can walk, the poles are used by athletes like fell runners or ultra-marathon runners or those who just like to improve their health and fitness on an easy walk.

    What is it good for?

    Nordic Walking is also used as a rehabilitation exercise after hip or knee injury by taking the weight off the joints, by using the upper body more.

    Nordic Walking is good for everybody - from the absolute fitness / exercise beginner to the trained athlete.

Nordic Walking has a positive effect on emotional and physical health. It can improve not only on your cardio-vascular system, your muscles and joints - it has also a positive impact on brain function ...

    Each Nordic Walking session is scheduled for an hour - sometimes it can take a little longer ;)
