Walk this way, the Nordic way

Tuesday, 28 January, 2020

Feel the benefits of combining exercise with nature and get that feel-good factor by embarking on a Nordic walking adventure.

Havant Borough Council’s ‘Get up and Go’ and Nordic Walking UK are working together to provide a unique walking experience for those aged 55 and above in the borough.

Councillor Tim Pike, Cabinet lead for Planning, Regeneration and Communities said: “I encourage everyone to take part in regular exercise to boost their wellbeing. Nordic walking is an ideal form of exercise as it’s something you can enjoy whatever your fitness levels and it gives you a chance to head out to the great outdoors.

By taking part in ‘Get up and Go’ experience you will learn the four-gear technique of Nordic from qualified instructors, and the first taster sessions are free!”

Nordic walking uses specially designed poles to help you feel lighter on your feet, taking the weight off your knees and joints.

The first taster sessions are free to attend, with walking poles provided throughout the course. Locations vary across the borough.
