Silverfit

NORDIC WALKING SESSIONS

Nordic Walking sessions re-started in June in a socially distanced way.

Nordic Walking is our most popular Silverfit activity, with sessions across various London locations from Monday-Friday.
We are continuing our sessions, in a socially distanced way, and we need to know IN ADVANCE if you wish to attend a session.

  • You will need to fill out this form for sign up for the following week – the form will open on Tuesdays at 11am and close on Thursday at 12pm.

Places will be offered on a first to respond basis.  Depending on the venue we can take between 5-15 people (in groups of 5), depending on how many insured Nordic Walk Leaders are able to help. Signing up via the form does not guarantee a place, you will be emailed to confirm you have a place.

 

Nordic Walking sessions at South Norwood on Wednesdays, Crystal Palace and Burgess Park on Thursdays are now open to members who have not done NW before. Poles can be provided.

Please note that for all sessions other than Crystal Palace Thursday, BP Thursday and South Norwood we only take people who have Nordic Walking experience at the moment. This might change at some point and we will update you on this.

At many venues toilets are re-opening. Toilets are open at: Docklands (up stairs in Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and in Southwark Park), Brockwell Park  (in the park, plus Blackbird Bakery & Sesame), Burgess Park, Crystal Palace (train station), Whitton and South Norwood.

Benefits of Nordic Walking:

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.
