Walk Kernow

Welcome to Walk Kernow where we are passionate about Nordic Walking.If you have a love of the outdoors, want to exercise, want some "me" time want to lose weight, enjoy exercising with others, want to improve your strength, health and well being or even all of the above and more, then Nordic Walking is for you. Beginners and experienced Nordic Walkers welcome!

What is Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking uses specially designed poles to enhance your natural walking experience. With a technique that is similar to the upper body action of classic cross country skiing, Nordic Walking becomes a genuinely whole body exercise that can be enjoyed at many levels, from walking for health to athletic Nordic running. More than 10 million people globally enjoy this outdoor activity all year round.

How will it benefit my body?

Nordic Walking combines the simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing. The result is a full body workout, which means that you:-

-burn up to 46% more calories compared to walking without poles
-release tension in the neck and shoulders
-improve your posture and gait-strengthen your back and abdominal muscles
-reduce the impact on the joints

Because Nordic Walking doesnít feel like hard work you'íll be happy to walk further and for longer.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or worries.

Looking forward to walking with you!!

Nordic Walking CornwallI began Nordic Walking over 3 years ago. I had had enough of being overweight and not having the energy to enjoy my life. Diets alone didn't work for me and I hated gyms and classes as being overweight I was very self conscious.I found a Nordic Walking group and before long I decided that I really enjoyed Nordic Walking.....it wasn't a race, there was no competition and no one was looking at me thinking how awful I looked because we were all too busy out enjoying ourselves walking and talking. Not only was it good for my confidence and health I found that I was getting some "me" time too, being a mum I needed a break now and again and didn't realise it. I decided to buy a set of really nice poles, I wanted to make sure I kept on Nordic Walking so I thought if I buy these poles I will HAVE to use them. I then started to calorie count alongside the Nordic Walking and the weight began to fall off. I walked twice a week for roughly an hour each time. In about 8 months I had lost a total of 4 stone. I went from squeezing into a size 16 to a trim size 10/12.The poles, that I still use now, were such a great investment in ME.I hope you will enjoy Nordic Walking as much as I do and can benefit from it as much as I have and still do....
