Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland
Where to go Nordic Walking in Aberdeen Scotland and the Aberdeenshire Forests with a guide to Nordic Walking and its health benefits
Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland is a great way to keep fit, increase your health, meet new friends and view the wonderful Aberdeenshire countryside.
Aberdeenshire Council run Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland sessions in conjunction with the Forestry Commission. For 2008 these Nordic Walking sessions take place at Kirkhill Forest and Countesswells Forest until the end of June 08. Walkers should meet in the car park. The timings of each Nordic Walking activity are:
Wednesday and Thursday evenings 6.30-8.00pm
Friday morning 10.00-12.00 noon
Entry for Aberdeen Race For Life is now open.
During each Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland event there will be trained Nordic UK leaders who will be available to teach Nordic Walking techniques. Nordic Walkers of all levels are invited to attend. The first Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland event is free. Thereafter each Nordic Walk costs just £3 per session or 6 sessions can be purchased for £15. Nordic Walking poles can be bought from £20 though each session cost does include the hire of Nordic Walking poles as well as tuition. Those who attend these Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland events with their own Nordic poles can participate for free. Cheques should be made payable to Aberdeenshire Council.
The Nordic Walking instructors will be giving away free pedometers to each walker.

Nordic Walking originated in Scandinavia and burns 20% more calories than normal walking because you use many more muscles of your body which includes your legs, arms, the rear part of your shoulders, abdominal muscles and your chest and back muscles. The effort is spread throughout your body so the activity feels like you are doing less exercise but getting more health and fitness benefits. During the first free session you will be taught the Nordic Walking technique and receive guidance throughout your walk and future Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland events. All levels of physical ability are encouraged to take part in the Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland events. There is a small health questionnaire to fill out which includes questions such as do you have asthma, a heart condition, get pain on physical activity, have diabetes, dizziness or lose of balance or have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse with walking. Theses should also be discussed with your Nordic Walking Aberdeen Scotland instructor.
