The INWA 10 Step Method

INWA 10 Step Method Nordic Walking


British Nordic Walking is a member of the International Nordic Walking Federation (INWA), the global body that represents Nordic Walking in over 40 countries throughout the world. 

We train our instructors to teach INWA’s original 10 Step Method, a tried and tested way of ensuring Nordic Walkers adopt the best posture and technique to get the most out of Nordic Walking as they progress through the Method. Developed by sports scientists and biomechanics experts, in conjunction with the development of ergonomically designed poles, this method of teaching Nordic Walking is recognised internationally. 

The 10 Step Method includes all the knowledge you need to teach Nordic Walking effectively and safely. No further fitness qualifications are essential to become a Nordic Walking instructor although you might want to consider adding the Level 2 qualification to your toolkit if you want to enhance your offering with other fitness activities. 

Using feet, legs, hips and arms, the 10 Step Method can see you using up to 46% more calories than ordinary walking. No wonder it’s such a popular choice. 

All our instructors are qualified to teach this method which ensures that everyone that they teach will be able to get the full benefit of the highest standard of Nordic Walking.
