Walks for You

Whatever your level of fitness we have a walk for you

Walks for You

At Nordic Fitness Ireland we are passionate about walking and we want to ensure that whatever your level of fitness there is a walk for you to enjoy. 

We have regular walks from 30 mins up to 4 hours. Walks in our Walk for Wellbeing programme can be done with stability poles (health walks), or Exerstrider or Nordic poles (all other walks). Walks in our Walk for Fitness programme are with Nordic poles only. 

Whichever walk you choose be sure to check the description to ensure it is suitable for your level of fitness. If you are unsure please give us a call. Whilst we encourage you to push yourself we will never let you attend a walk that we feel is out of your reach.

NB: You can attend one of our  Wellbeing walks on 1 occasion without poles to find out more about walking with poles. After this you will be required to attend one of our training programmes and purchase your own poles to attend walks.
