Nordic walking is increasing in popularitiy in the UK and once you give it a go, it’s easy to see why…
Nordic walking is easy to fit into most peoples lifestyle, it’s simple to pick up, improves posture, promotes health and gets you outdoors. It really is one of the most accessible forms of effective exercise we know of and all you need to get started is a pair of nordic walking poles and your trainers.

Using a pair of LEKI Nordic Walking poles turns a regular walk into a surprisingly easy full-body workout. Because you are using more muscles to propel yourself forward during nordic walking, your perceived effort is less as you are spreading the load to other areas of your body. Nordic walking is such a simple concept but really delivers the goods if you are looking to improve your fitness and performance.

Leki make high-quality poles for all walks of life and they are our preferred choice of nordic walking pole at Head to the Hills. The finish and strength of Leki poles are outstanding and the features incorporated into their nordic walking range are well thought out and add to the enjoyment of a nordic walking session.

With our trail running and mountain heritage we tend to favour the 3 section series of Traveller poles which pack away small enough to attach to a running pack when not in use. The dependability of the Leki locking mechansim means that they are practical for the load bearing exercises that you would perform in a guided nordic walking session but remain light and compact enough for a long day of speed hiking or trail running.

Our two section poles are the perfect choice for nordic walking in parks and during nordic walking classes and are the number one choice of our instructors. The adjustability of these poles makes them ideal for groups or where you want to adjust pole length to facilitate more advanced, dynamic nordic walking techniques. For our instructor deals on multiple purchases of nordic walking poles, please give us a call on 015394 33826.
