Nordic walking

Our Nordic walks are now FREE so come along and join us as we explore many different routes across central & rural Stirling.

Nordic walking is a technique that is similar to the upper body action of classic cross country ski-ing - it becomes a whole body exercise that can be enjoyed at many levels and burn a whopping 46% more calories than regular walking without poles. To get the most out of Nordic walking please note that you should be fit enough to walk for over an hour at a brisk pace.
To take part in our Nordic walks we ask that you first complete 3 consecutive weeks of training as detailed below:-


Dates:  Tuesday evenings  15th, 22nd and 29th May,   2018

Time  :  7pm-8.30pm

venue  : Kings park, Stirling , meet at the gates at the main entrance 

Poles will be provided

Cost for the 3 sessions - £20

The sessions focus on correct technique to ensure you get the most benefit from Nordic walking. Poles are provided and we ask that you try and complete all 3 training sessions before joining your first walk. To book contact Bookings on 01786 273555.
