May is National Walking Month – time to get a spring into your step

Getting out and about in the great outdoors even for just a few minutes a day makes everyone feel so much better.  Aren’t we fortunate in South Warwickshire and in the Cotswolds to have plenty of walkable routes and areas to explore?

There have been plenty of studies and news reports in recent years suggesting that walking is a great way of getting or keeping fit. Whether it is just a family walk with the kids, a romantic stroll with your partner, or a challenging walk on your own, make the most of it. Walking is an easy way to tone up, lose weight and improve your overall fitness. We must not underestimate the power of walking on your mental health, outdoor exercise is even more supportive of mental health then other exercise. It is also is affordable and does not require any expensive equipment.

“So why should I go Nordic Walking rather than just for a simple walk?” Because everything one can achieve through regular walking one will be able to gain twice as quickly and effective through Nordic Walking!

With Nordic Walking poles, it makes it more fun and so much easier! Joining a local Nordic Walking group gives your body and soul many benefits. Isn’t it great to exercise without noticing it and meeting new people that enjoy the same activity as you – spending time outdoors exploring the countryside?

Nordic Walking, if done correctly, certainly gives you a spring in your step! The correct technique will give your walk a little bounce and ensures you are engaging 90% of your skeletal muscles which means you will burn up to 46% calories more compared to ordinary walking. Isn’t that great news? Spring has finally arrived and there is this fantastic way of toning up, losing some weight whilst enjoying the sunshine and good company. Come and try Nordic Walking, you won’t regret it!

Changes don’t just happen. You make them happen.
