Capital Nordic Walking

Canberra's Capital Nordic Walking prides itself on providing top quality Nordic Walking instruction for all clients. Nordic Walking is unique: it can provide benefits for everyone, all ages, those with medical problems to the super-fit. The health benefits of Nordic Walking are proven to be significantly greater than regular walking, jogging, swimming and cycling. NW uses over 90% of the body's muscles - way more than walking, running and cycling. More muscles means higher heart rate and more calories burnt. Using the poles lessens the load and strain on feet, ankles, knees and hip joints and mobilises neck and back. Around the world, millions of Nordic Walkers are enjoying the immense health and fitness benefits that this new form of fitness walking provides. Originally developed from the summer training regime of cross-country skiers, Nordic Walking is one of the fastest growing health and fitness activities in the world being used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and fun. Kristen Pratt, Founder of CWN, has been actively involved in health and fitness throughout her career. She is a qualified Occupational Therapist and certified Nordic Walking Instructor with Nordic Walking UK, the Nordic Academy and the International Nordic Walking Federation (Australia) (INWA). Kristen holds the following qualifications: B.App.Sc(OT), M.Ed.St, M.BA, M.IntDev’t, Cert III & IV in Fitness.
