Nordic Walking

Get up and Go and Nordic Walking UK are working together to provide a unique experience for the over 55’s in Havant Borough.

Nordic Walking has grown into a popular way for people of all ages and fitness levels to gain fitness, tone up, lose weight and improve their overall health. Unlike when trekking or rambling, Nordic Walking poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along.

This engages the upper body and makes you feel lighter on your feet, which has four major advantages. You use 90% of your major muscles so your upper body gets toned as well as your legs and backside! You can burn 20–40% extra calories by using the poles – this can really help with weight loss It takes the pressure off your knees and joints and is great for back and neck problems.

 

Embark on a 6 week Nordic Walking adventure- learn the 4 gear technique to Nordic Walking and then receive your nordic walking passport, this will allow you to become a member of Nordic Walking UK and join in on walks across the country. Through-out the 6 weeks all equipment will be provided for you!

 

Get up and Go and Nordic Walking UK will be providing Two Taster sessions one in Havant and one on Hayling Island these are an opportunity to have a go at Nordic Walking and get familiar with the equipment.

Following on from this learn to 1 & 2 sessions are an opportunity to learn the 4 gears to Nordic walking and get your Nordic walking passport.

Week 3-6 are an opportunity to see what joining the Nordic walking UK would entail and put everything learnt into action without having to buy the Nordic walking equipment.

  1. Hi Nikki, It is great to hear you are interested! Unfortunately the Get up and Go programme is part of Sport England active ageing project targeting over 55s. Therefore due to our funding requirements out activities are for over 55s. I will have a word with our instructor Carl and see if there are any other things like this coming to Havant and let you know.

    If you would like to discuss further please email me at info@getupandgohavant.com

    Best Wishes

  2. When will you be having taster sessions on Hayling Island again I am really interested in this as I have already brought my poles but I want to know that I am doing it properly before I start this .

  3. We have not got a date at this moment in time but we hope to have another course run in the spring! Please keep posted!
