About Us

NordicWalkingFit  started in 2013 teaching people the technique of this fantastic outdoor activity. First in the Purbeck, as the beauty and the variety of walks are so abundant that it was ideal place to start to promote Nordic Walking. With so many hills, typical of Dorset, Nordic walking poles definitely make it easier as they help to push you to the top and see the beautiful surrounding views.

Once established and with more enquiries NordicWalkingFit  grew into Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and the New Forest. Though this proves to be much more of an Urban area it's amazing how many green areas you can find to just get away from it all.

Once you have completed a course and gain the technique there is so much you can get involved with.

Meet like minded people, be one with nature and really enjoy

keeping fit.

What do we offer then.........
