Nordic Walking is a full-body exercise that involves walking with specialised walking poles that provide additional support and resistance. This low-impact activity is great for people of all ages and fitness levels and is quickly gaining popularity worldwide. While Nordic walking can be done on your own, joining a professionally led group can offer a wide range of extra benefits.
In this blog, we will explore the benefits of Nordic walking with a professionally led group such as Walk Kernow.
A group led by professional Nordic Walking Instructors can provide you with guidance on the correct technique, ensuring that you get the most out of your workout while also reducing the risk of injury.
Joining a Nordic Walking group can offer a great opportunity for social interaction. You will have the chance to meet new people with similar interests, and you can work together to achieve your fitness goals. The group environment can be motivating and inspiring, encouraging you to achieve more than you would on your own.
Working out on your own can be challenging, especially when you're not feeling particularly motivated. A professionally led Nordic Walking group can provide the extra motivation you need to stick with your fitness routine. You'll have a set schedule, and the group environment will encourage you to show up and give it your all.
Improved Cardiovascular Health
Nordic walking is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise. When done correctly, it can help improve your heart health by increasing your heart rate and improving your overall fitness level. Walk Kernow can help you get the most out of your workout by setting a pace that is challenging but achievable.
Exercise is a great way to reduce stress and improve your mental health. Nordic Walking is no exception.
