Nordic Walking is an ideal activity for sustainable weight loss. The utilisation of all major muscle groups results in greater calorie consumption and less perceived effort by the participant. In addition Nordic Walking can be a social activity and being performed outdoors is often more enjoyable for people who do not generally enjoy exercise.

Weight Loss benefits of Nordic Walking:

  • Promotes a longer lasting post-work-out calorie burn effect
  • Reduces bodyweight load on ankles and feet
  • Muscle fatigue and discomfort decreased due to workload being spread across the body.
  • Low perceived exertion compared to the higher energy expenditure achieved.
  • Minimises risk of strains by spreading body weight over four points of contact with the ground.
  • Enjoyable, engaging and conducive to long term participation.
