If you can walk, you can Nordic Walk!
Welcome to The Suffolk School of Nordic Walking @The Coddenham Centre
Nordic Walking is a whole body, aerobic exercise suitable for all, at any level, irrespective of age or physical fitness, using and toning 90% of the skeletal muscles. It’s low impact and helps improve posture, heart health, weight and mobility.
Enhanced blood circulation, metabolism and calorie burn (up to 40% more than ordinary walking) are brilliant for aiding weight loss and safely combat obesity.
Nordic Walking in the UK
Exercising in the fresh air of our wonderful UK countryside in here in Suffolk helps boost your mood and sense of well-being and alleviate depression.
Joining a group of fellow Nordic Walkers is a sociable and fun way to get and stay fit.
The Coddenham Centre introduced Nordic Walking training to the community earlier in 2020, with the support of Active Suffolk and their Fit Villages scheme.
British Nordic Walking
We are now working with British Nordic Walking, the national not for profit body affiliated to the International Nordic Walking Federation (INWA). We believe their ‘Ten Step’™ approach is the most thorough training, providing a sound basis for years of enjoyable Nordic Walking.
Nordic Walking Classes are currently conducted outside with a maximum of six people to ensure comfortable social distancing. Nordic Walking Poles are provided.
In addition, for those already Nordic Walking, but seeking further development, we will also be offering a series of Improver Modules and migration to the INWA ‘Ten Steps’™.
Take steps towards better health and fitness, join us on our next session or course at The Suffolk School of Nordic Walking.
