Nordic Walking is a fast growing activity, for all ages and fitness levels to gain fitness, lose weight and improve your health.
Unlike when walking, Nordic Walking Poles are planted behind you in order to propel you along. This engages the upper body and makes you feel lighter on your feet. It means you use 90% of your major muscles, burn 30% extra calories and it takes the pressure off your knees and joints and is great for back and neck problems. You can get the most out of even a fairly short walk.
However it is crucial to learn the correct technique from a qualified Nordic Walking UK instructor.
Janneke Gorzeman has practiced Nordic Walking since 2009 and is a fully qualified Instructor.
Janneke lives in Thorpe, a few miles from Ashbourne and half a mile from Dovedale with the famous stepping stones and Thorpe Cloud.
In 2015 Janneke won the ladies Nordic Walking 21 km race of the Swiss Alpine Marathon event in Davos. Janneke has also completed several marathons using the Nordic Walking technique.
"A wonderful way to get fit without injury. Better than walking as it uses more muscles, and safer than running ; no dodgy knees or ankles caused. Janneke is a superb leader taking well organised friendly but stretching walks in the most beautiful scenery in England. I have been walking with her for over 2 years and have changed from being slow and unsteady, having had a back & foot injury to being the proud walker of a Dolomites hut to hut walk last summer."
"Following a taster session early in January, I have completed my beginners course and now walk each week with this group. There is a choice of days and abilities. It is so easy to find a walk to suit you. Janneke is great to walk with, she varies the walks and tailors the walk to the ability of the people she has on the walk. This is great all round exercise. Why would you spend time in a gym, when you can be out in the Peak District?"
