Activity Promotion

The perfect exercise!

Nordic Walking UK are committed to helping people to enjoy being active outdoors. We support a number of community programmes across the UK and have developed a complete Community Programme package for those looking to set up a sustainable, affordable solution. Our proven systems of training and delivery ensure client engagement, retention and results. Projects can utilise marketing and reporting solutions and train their own leaders and the concept recently won the FLAME award for the best OUTDOOR exercise programme.

The Community Package provides

1. Comprehensive training on how to set up a programme and maximise participation (and income if required) using set teaching plans and our unique 'Learn to Nordic Walk' course. The course comes with materials and FREEDOM cards which help you to ensure all participants have been taught correctly prior to walking with leaders, the cards allow your walkers to join in with other NWUK projects and so open up lots of possibilities.

2. The FREEDOM cards also come with a 5 gift voucher for your participants to use towards their own poles AND a safety 24 number which will ensure their personal medical details are on hand should an emergency occur.

3.Walk Leader Cascade trainer (so you can train your own leaders in house)

4. Access to all of the NWUK programmes that will help you target a variety of age groups and abilities - e.g. Stride for Success workplace health, Wellbeing, Weight Loss, Young Explorers (Jnr & Family) and even the ultimate Nordic Circuits which are proving really poplular with younger Adults
All come with marketing materials which can be branded for your project

4. A full page about the project on this website that you can edit to ensure people can always see your latest dates and times

5. Inclusion in all our National campaigns and promotions

6. Discounted poles for you and your participants or the ability to generate income from poles sales if you need to create a sustainable model.

We have worked with over 200 PCTs, Local Authorities and Community wellness projects and are delighted to see successful Nordic Walking programmes taking place all over the UK

Nordic Walking is proven to be suitable for:
GP Referral schemes
Cardiac Rehabilitation programmes
Health Promotion
Sports/Activity development

It is the ideal way to add progression to Walking for health initiatives as it allows those who have gained fitness and confidence to work harder without having to leave the rest of the group. It means organisers do not have to plan longer or harder sessions in order to keep them interested and achieving.

NWUK have a range of courses from Walk Leader to Exercise Referral and can simply provide training to existing teams or be commissioned to develop a full fitness walking programme.

Our team can help you to get the message across and get people in your community participating in and enjoying Nordic Walking.
