Equipment Needed

No specialist clothing is necessary for our sessions, we are pleased to give our guide lines

For all our coached sessions / courses and individual one to one sessions you are able to use our specialised Nordic Walking Poles free of charge

Clothing for Nordic Walking

  • We recommend layered clothing appropriate for the weather conditions
  • Better to wear a few light layers of clothing than thicker and heavier clothing
  • Wear a waterproof jacket and light gloves for cold, wet weather conditions
  • Using a small back pack is good for carrying those loose bits and bobs
  • Carrying a water bottle in the back pack is always a good idea

Footwear for Nordic Walking

We recommend that you wear comfortable

  • Light weight outdoor walking – approach type shoes, these are ideal
  • Strong and light weight training shoes are great for beginners
