Nordic walking

Nordic walking is a full-body exercise that's easy on the joints and suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It's based on using specially designed walking poles in a way that harnesses the power of the upper body to propel you forward as you walk.

We offer free, five-week Nordic walking courses for beginners in Hereford. They are very popular, so we recommend that you book early. Our courses are a great way to learn a new skill in a fun and friendly social atmosphere.
