Nordic walking is ideal for strengthening the back muscles. Healthy muscles are the best way to prevent back problems. The long-term goal of Nordic walking is to keep the poles under close control in every situation. Depending on the fitness and ability of each individual Nordic walker, there are different goals in terms of terrain and training requirements. It only gets truly rewarding when Nordic walking becomes second nature through appropriate training; the desired success will then come by itself.

Anyone can take part. The Nordic “ALFA” technique includes the basics for functional and effective Nordic walking that strengthens the back. A video that introduces the Nordic ALFA technology can be viewed HERE

Equipment: sports shoes and sportswear for all weathers. Preferably a belt with a drinks bottle. Nordic walking poles can be borrowed from the trainer free of charge during trial sessions. Do not rush to buy Nordic walking poles, test them out with us beforehand!

We organize day trips into the countryside around Frankfurt three to four times a year. These will be announced in good time on the homepage and by email.
