Nordic Walking is outdoor fitness walking with specially designed poles.

It provides fitness-building stimulation without the stress on the knees and back. Poles are provided for the class. No prior experience needed. Students must be able to perform a brisk walk for 2 hours (approximately 5 miles) on paved and/or dirt trails including small hills.
