Our Classes and Workshops

Nordic Walking is an exercise that claims the benefits of walking. The main characteristic is that when walking you use poles similar to those used for Nordic skiing.

In addition, a specific technique is used to achieve the maximum benefit of the crossed coordination of arms and legs.

As in any activity that is performed for the first time, it is necessary to learn the technique to obtain the benefits described above as soon as possible.

Our classes: their objective is to understand how you walk and learn how Nordic walking helps you walk well, improving the flexibility and strength of all your muscles.

In the classes you will acquire the basic knowledge to learn to walk with specific poles for Nordic walking and the development of good technique.

In addition, we work to educate and improve body posture (even without canes), improve walking performance, become aware of the way you walk and identify the difference between: walking without canes / walking with any cane and walking with walking canes nordic.

It is a very low impact exercise, in which each person sets the pace. It can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age and even people with back or neck ailments, as it provides great flexibility and resistance to the spine.

Benefits of Nordic Walking

Comprehensive Sport

It is a very complete aerobic exercise that works on resistance, strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. Prevents vascular risks. Improves the circulatory system, the work of the heart when walking is carried out at a more demanding pace, contributes to strengthening it

Low risk of injury

Unlike other sports, Nordic walking greatly minimizes the chance of injury. As it requires the help of canes, it is practiced on flat paths or with few irregularities, to support the cane well. This greatly facilitates footing and good balance, leaving the possibility of suffering a fall almost nil.

It helps you lose weight

With this sport you spend more than 20% of energy than walking and if done well, you end up moving 90% of the muscular system. If combined with a healthy and adequate diet, this muscle exercise helps to increase the calories burned.

Relieves accumulated tension and stress

Practicing Nordic Walking also works your mind. This discipline must be practiced outdoors, either in the countryside or on the beach, but not on asphalt. Getting in touch with nature, fresh air and sunlight helps fight anxiety.

Recommended to fight lymphedema, a consequence of breast cancer and other types of cancer.

Nordic Walking is recommended for people who have overcome breast cancer. Practicing this sport improves shoulder mobility, reduces joint pain and prevents lymphedema (swelling caused by lymph node removal).

Combat postural problems

The movement with the sticks 'forces' you to place your body, especially your shoulders and back, at a correct angle. The person who practices Nordic walking correctly cannot go with the shoulder pad sagging, a fact that helps the posture of the entire skeleton to be correct.

Strengthens bones without damaging joints

Contrary to what it might seem, the vibration of the cane after each push strengthens the bone without damaging the joints, damage that can be caused by the continued repetition of exercises in other disciplines.

Contributes to improving the practice of other sports

As it is a comprehensive sport that strengthens other parts of the body, it also provides improvements that are needed in other disciplines: more balance, resistance, strength or coordination.

Balances muscle tone

Nordic walking is a sport that works all muscle groups in a balanced way, which are developed proportionally. This eliminates the typical tension pain between one side of the body and the other and gives the back muscles enough consistency to keep the spine in place.
