Karen runs regular Nordic Walking groups throughout Cornwall, for first-timers to more advanced members of the active walking community. Nordic Walking is more focused than just brisk walking, actively recruiting muscles required for improved posture and involving greater engagement of the upper and lower limbs.
Nordic Walking uses poles to add two major benefits:
Poles immediately encourage better posture and engage
a greater proportion of the upper body muscles.
Poles provide lift to make walking feel easier and propulsion to increase walking speed: the Nordic walker exercises at a higher intensity for less perceived effort!
Karen's classes also make use of the idyllic South West landscape and all equipment is provided. The Nordic walking technique must be learn correctly if the participant is to get the most out of the activity. Effective instruction, which Karen a Nordic Walking UK registered professional provides, ensures the participant can exercise safely and correctly.
