Nordic walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world. Originally a summer training regime for cross-country skiers, it is performed with walking poles reducing the stress on joints, making it the perfect exercise for myself as a 50 year old. With the poles in hand you’re using more than 90% of the body’s muscles and burning up to twice the calories of standard walking.
North Devon couple Yvonne and Steve Watson are passing on their enthusiasm for Nordic walking. As qualified instructors they’re offering sessions in the growing walking technique, with a trial session free of charge and without commitment.
Sandaway Beach Holiday Park in Combe Martin is the perfect base to put Nordic walking to the test on some of the most picturesque walks in the country.
