Nordic Walking at Haldon Forest Park

Nordic walking is a great, low impact workout and burns 20-40% more calories than walking normally. By using specially designed Nordic Walking poles you work all of the major muscles in the body, without putting unnecessary strain on your joints.

If you have your own poles, choose from our waymarked 2.5K, 4K or 5K Nordic walking routes.

Fiona Swan, Nordic Walking UK instructor, offers regular Nordic Walking classes suitable for all abilities:

  • Monday 12.15-1.30pm
  • Thursday 11,00am-12.15pm

Meet like-minded people and improve your fitness. Training and poles are provided.

For more information, class times or to book direct please, visit Fiona's website.
