Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking

Not sure how to keep fit….. Well a perfect way to keep fit if you love the outdoors is to try Nordic Walking.

 

What is Nordic walking?

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking.

Nordic Walking is a specific fitness and is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and fun.

What do you need?

A set of Nordic walking poles

Why?

The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs

The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier.

Where can I buy Nordic Walking Poles from?

Look no further, Breaking Free sells Nordic Walking poles!!

Here is what we stock at Breaking Free:

Leki Nordic Spin

Leki Nordic Spin

The Nordic Spin is a two-part telescopic pole that can be adjusted from 100 - 130cm. With a high strength, low weight aluminium shaft, the Spin is a fantastic all round Nordic walking pole. The Spin features Leki's Trigger 1 grip click system, which allows the user to detach the hand strap at a simple press of a button. Like all Leki Nordic poles, the Spin has both super grippy rubber pole tip for use on pavements, and hard-wearing carbide tips for use off the beaten track.

 Leki Nordic Supreme

Leki Nordic Supreme

The sporty 'Supreme' is a great recommendation for starting off or changing over to a Vario model, since the light aluminium pole does not only have balanced fixtures such as the Trigger 1 CorTec grip with the Trigger 1 strap, the Power grip pad rubber buffer and the super-strong Super Lock system which all provide a high level of comfort, but also features a fresh, sporty design.

Leki Nordic Supreme Shark

Leki Nordic Supreme Shark

The brand new Leki Supreme Shark is the new model pole for 2014. It replaces the bestselling Leki Prestige. Great Value adjustable pole with cork handle, Leki Shark quick release strap system and comes with the Power grip paws.

Brand New Brands

Brand New Brands coming to Breaking Free in 2015


We recently went to the OTS (outdoor trade show) to find new brands to compliment our existing brands. Sure enough we found 2 brand new brands and we are increasing an existing brand that will compliment all our current brands for sure.

We are please to introduce you to our first new brand Keen Footwear.

2003 Newport

 

KEEN began by asking a simple design question: Can a sandal protect the toes? The answer was yes. The answer was the Newport.

This one radical departure for sandals inspired the overriding KEEN philosophy of hybrid innovation, of striving to create new possibilities in everything we do – pushing ourselves to discover and implement original ideas in our products and challenging ourselves to consider each choice we make.

As we grow we promise to continue seeking product solutions for life's everyday needs. Designing shoes for your HybridLife and incorporating processes that reduce our impact on the places you play.

We are pleased to introduce you to our second new brand Mountain King Walking Poles.

Mountain King is the UK's leading manufacturer of walking and trekking poles.
All of Mountain King's poles are produced in their factory in Newcastle upon Tyne, using only the highest quality tube and components to produce the most durable poles available.
Mountain King are committed to making poles that are reliable and have a range of poles to meet the requirements of all walkers.

We are pleased to introduce you to our existing brand Pacsafe.

We sell a few items from Pacsafe but have decided to sell a bigger variety of pacsafe items.

Anti-theft feature: Carrysafe Slashguard Straps

Outpac Designs Limited, makers of Pacsafe® was established in 1998 by 2 Aussie friends – Rob Schlipper and Magnus McGlashan - who had sailed most of the world’s oceans and clocked up visits to more than 80 countries around the world. Their own experiences and those of other travellers convinced them of the need for no-nonsense travel security and from that their eXomesh® anti-theft technology was born and formed the first-ever, award-winning Pacsafe® anti-theft backpack protector.

Today, Pacsafe® can be found in over 33 countries worldwide and the product range includes adventure backpacks, leisure bags, urban bags, women’s bags, camera bags as well as luggage and travel accessories.

 

If you have any questions about any of our new brands please let us know. We would love to hear from you.

Have a great day, from all of us here at Breaking Free.
