Stewart gave Mel a Nordic Walking course for her 36th birthday - something that they could do together outside! What a great gift - the gift of good health! It turned out that there would soon be three of them Nordic Walking as Mel was already pregnant when they started their course.
Because of the low impact nature of Nordic Walking it is really great for 'mums-to-be' and new mums. Nordic Walking unloads hips, lower back and tired legs (by up to 10kgs), supports a good centre of gravity, strengthens core and upper body, arms and shoulders - in preparation for carrying around that rapidly growing new bundle!
You can Nordic Walk right up to delivery and as soon as the little one arrives they love to go on your front while Nordic Walking (as they are so used to the motion) and then on your back when they are older. You can Nordic Walk and catch up with mates. No need for prams or baby sitters! How cool is that?! We can’t wait to meet our newest and youngest Nordic Walker - when he/she is born in July.
