Adventures of a Nordic Walker – The Camino De Santiago

As someone already with a love of walking you may have already been aware of and caught BBC2’s recent programme “Pilgrimage – The Road to Santiago”. If not, don’t despair it can still be caught on BBC iplayer and it’s worth a watch as it may inspire you to give it a go. The show follows celebrities such as Neil Morrisey, Debbie McGee and Heather Small as they attempt parts of the 500-mile pilgrimage from St Jean Pied De Port in France to Santiago in Northern Spain.

The Magic of Birdsong and Blossom – Why exercising outdoors is so good for you

The Magic of Birdsong and Blossom – Why exercising outdoors is so good for you

It’s mid-March – we are eagerly anticipating the return of spring, brighter mornings and later evenings. The temptation to hide under the duvet is strong, or if you are more committed, you may head down to your local gym to keep your exercise regime going while you wait for warmer days.

I Challenge YOU!!

Who is up for a challenge? And by that, I don’t mean those half-hearted resolutions that we make every January – the same ones we have made every year for the last five years!

No, I mean a good meaty challenge to focus on, one that takes you away from your daily life and that you could look back on at the end of the year and say with pride “I DID THAT”  – something that makes the year stand out for you in your memory, one that you will never forget and that spurs you on to do other things that you never thought you could do.  Continue reading

Love Actually………… – By Julie Barnes

It’s that lovely but frustrating time of year again where you really want to buy something special for your loved ones but, inevitably, if you are anything like me you will be stuck for ideas or will end up buying the same old thing. At best you will swap vouchers – at worst socks (unless they are Nordic Walking socks of course in which case they are a great present, and you can get them here!). Continue reading

As the clocks go back, the nights draw in and the temperature drops, the temptation to stay indoors becomes greater – But there is no reason why you can’t still enjoy the British countryside and the benefits of Nordic Walking. There’s an old saying “there is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing” so with that in mind, here are some tips on staying safe this winter. Continue reading

NWUK membership – a bright idea

One of the newly added benefits of Nordic Walking UK membership is 10% discount off LEDlenser head torches.

Martin Christie, founder of Nordic walking in the UK, runs Exercise with Friends Nordic Walking Club in London. Here’s what he says about Ledlenser head torches:

‘One of our clients purchased a LED Lenser H7R rechargeable head torch two winters ago and within weeks more than half our regular group had followed suit, including me. Collectively, we had tried a number of brands, models and price points but found that the quality of the LED Lenser outshone all competitors. If you think it’s a car coming over Hampstead Heath at night, you’re wrong; it’s a group of Nordic walkers!’

Membership is only £9.95 but if you have completed the FREEDOM programme and have a unique CC code you can join for FREE for the first year (£2.50 p and p for the membership pack). You can sign up using your CC code at nordicwalking.co.uk
