Nordic Walking is a trendy form of outdoor exercise, quickly building a reputation as a high intensity workout and a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Nordic Walking is a bit different because it’s about using your arms too, with ski-pole-type walking sticks.

Not only does it mean you burn more calories – because you’re doing more work than normal for each step of the way – it’s also an effective way of coping with longer distances…. or becoming a faster walker – whichever you prefer!

The BBC made a short video about Nordic Walking and featured it on Countryfile last year. Watch the video clip on Nordic Walking
