Welcome to Nordic Walking


Walking just got Smarter and ... Nordic Walking could be the Perfect Fitness Solution for you!


Nordic Walking is an exercise and fitness activity which uses specially designed Nordic Walking poles during regular fitness walking.  This exercise is a smart and effective, total body "walking" workout, that uses 90% of your muscles 100% of the time.  It's an ideal way to improve your health and fitness.

Nordic Walking is used by Olympic X-Country Skiers, elite athletes, endurance competitors and the general population.  It also has applications for special population groups, such as those with Breast Cancer, Diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Osteoporosis, Obesity, Joint Replacement patients, Amputees and the Elderly.




Nordic Kiwi Ltd is a 100% New Zealand owned Company.  All Instructors have Health or Fitness certifications and are qualified by the International Nordic Walking Federation (INWA)


"Nordic Kiwis" Fundraising Half Marathon - 30 November 2013

Walking Stars Nordic Walking Stars Squad 2013

"Cancer has Visited our Families and Friends far too often"

That is why the "Nordic Kiwis" are training for the "Walking Stars" half-marathon, on the evening of 30 November, as this event is to help to raise funds for the Cancer Society.

This is a walk not only to remember those who have succumbed, but to celebrate those who have survived. Nordic Walking has been a valuable rehabilitation exercise for Cancer survivors. Some of the "Nordic Kiwis" are survivors. With more research and support, many more will be added to the list.

The "Nordic Kiwis" are a dedicated and determined bunch.  Not only have they put in the training miles over the past few weeks, they are currently the second highest fundraising team!

If you would like to make a remembrance dedication, support a current sufferer or affirm a survivor, please click on the link to make a donation, in their/your name.  We will be carrying all of the names during the walk.

Your support and generosity is greatly appreciated.
