NORDIC WALKING SESSIONS
Your continued good health and well-being are our top priority at Silverfit and, with this front of mind, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all sessions effective as of Tuesday 17th March and until further notice.
Nordic Walking is our most popular Silverfit activity, with sessions across various London locations from Monday-Friday (see full list of locations below – click each location to find out more)
The fitness and health benefits of Nordic Walking are significantly greater than regular walking, trekking or even jogging, with scientific research from Europe and the USA proving that Nordic Walking:
Activates 90% of the body's muscles
Burns up to 46% more calories than regular walking
Increases aerobic effect by up to 25% compared to regular walking
Decreases load and strain on the lower body
Tones upper arms, shoulders and back muscles
Improves lateral mobility of the spine
Develops core stability and strength
Promotes an upright posture
These benefits are achieved through the use of specially designed poles and a properly learned and performed Nordic Walking technique, whereby the poles are used as a resistance tool to engage the upper body. The result is a low impact, high results, total body exercise.
As a low impact walking exercise, Nordic Walking is something that can be done and enjoyed individually or as a group activity, anywhere a person can normally walk.
Why not give Nordic Walking a try and join us when our sessions are back up and running??
