Nordic Walking started off in the Scandinavian countries in the beginning of the 70's.
The real breakthrough came in 1997 when a Finnish Sports Institute in cooperation with other agencies, developed specific walking sticks for Nordic walkers. This made the present Nordic Walking technique possible and the activity grew in popularity all over Europe.
Today, over 8 million people practice the sport.
Nordic Walking is a full-body work out; an active walk that increases your overall
strength and endurance.
It can be done by anybody, anywhere, at any time of the year.
Nordic Walking is very sociable and easy to learn.
The technique is simple; Nordic Walking uses two specially designed walking sticks to work the upper body while walking. It's a simple enhancement of normal walking.
With a good technique, you enhance your walk with 30-40% and exercise 80% of your muscles.
Nordic Walking-Cross is an activity where we blend nordic walking with different types
of exercises to create an effective workout. Nordic walking-Cross is more physical than
a regular nordic walking session. We walk faster and the terrain is more varied.
A Nordic walking session with
lasts 1h45 minutes during week days and 2 hours during weekends.
A Nordic Walking Cross session lasts 1h30.
Since there are more members present on Sunday morning there is always
