According to the UK “Nordic Walking is Brilliant! It takes you outdoors, it connects you with other people, it’s a great all body workout and it’s safe. It’s simply Brilliant.”
Over the summer I’ve been enjoying Mary Tweed’s Walking on Air podcast. In her words it’s “A podcast for the Nordic Walking Community, both current members; those considering taking up this wonderful exercise; and people who want to learn more. Each week, I interview an expert in Nordic Walking and discuss the benefits of Nordic Walking on both physical and mental health. I am Mary Tweed, a British Nordic Walking instructor with Nordic Walking East Anglia.”
She completed 17 sessions in this first season and they are all outstanding. Topics range from the history of Nordic walking, the many benefits and even competitive Nordic walking. They are all fascinating and if you want to learn more about Nordic Walking and be inspired to give it a try just listen to a few of the interviews. If you’re currently a Nordic walker you’ll gain insight into how to maximize your workout and get the most out of your poles. It’s Brilliant!
Enjoy! and then come out for a class or POP Up walk to try it out for yourself!
