'How to' Videos

Step One: Posture

How you hold your body can have a profound impact, not only on your health, but also on shaping your self-image and self-confidence.

Step Two: Breathing

Breath is life. It brings us oxygen and provides the energy our bodies need to function. Nordic walking is a perfect opportunity to improve your breathing.

Step Three: Walking Action

To walk correctly, many things need to work in unison: good posture, correct muscle activation, using your arms and feet properly and good balance.

Step Four: Active Use Of Poles

Using Nordic walking poles in the correct way engages your torso, arms and shoulders, and you can feel your whole-body walking, not just your legs.
