Nordic Walking Concept
Nordic Walking or Nordic Walking, from Finland, is a very popular leisure sport in the Scandinavian countries.
Created in 2002 at the JAD, then unknown in France, it is a brand new discipline in the department of Seine-St-Denis, since it is regularly practiced in the most beautiful park of the Ile de France, Park G. Valbon La Courneuve.
The concept at JAD is an AUTHENTIC practice, as in Finland, AND OF QUALITY.
– It is suitable for all ages, from the young confirmed athlete to the sedentary senior.
– It is playful to maintain the motivation to “have fun” in a SPORT-HEALTH.
– It is diversified by techniques and varied courses, guided by objectives according to the level of the practitioners and the environment.
– It is always practiced in an environment conducive to activity.
Since 2010, Nordic Walking has been recognized by the French Sports and Cultural Federation (FSCF), of which JAD is affiliated.
The concept within the FSCF is, in addition, to promote the discipline through trainings of Nordic Walking facilitators and trainers.
SCHEDULES AND PLACE OF PRACTICE:

NORDIC MARKET or MARK WITH STICKS?
In hiking or normal walking, the use of poles serve mainly as a fulcrum.
In Nordic Walking, the “Nordic sticks”, very specific sticks, have the principle of accentuating the natural movement of the arms and
propelling the body forward.
The whole upper body also goes into action.
The pace of walking is more pronounced than walking because of the range of movement of the arms rather than the speed of execution of the movement.
It is possible, of course, to also increase the speed of movement if the Nordic walker wants a more sustained walk or run.
As you can see, Nordic Walking is a walking technique.
Although simple technique accessible to all, it requires learning.
BUT DO NOT PANIC ! Depending on age and physical condition, efforts will be measured.
THE STICKS ARE PROVIDED TO YOU.
Thanks to THEIR CORRECT USE, THE MARKET WILL BE MORE COMFORTABLE AND ESPECIALLY NON-TRAUMATING.
This is why it is best to start with competent teachers trained in the practice of this activity.
So … A giant step, come try the adventure.
IT’S IN CONVIVIALITY THAT YOU MAKE YOUR FIRST STEPS.
By cons, do not forget your shoes “hiking type”, if possible with low shank, or “type raid”.
Do not hesitate to contact us.
