Exercise Anywhere Academy has teamed up with specialist medical and fitness online training organisations to create bespoke training modules tailored to meet the needs of Nordic Walking UK Instructors.

  1. Hypertension and Exercise
  2. Osteoporosis
  3. Osteoarthritis and Joint Replacement
  4. Stress, Anxiety and Depression
  5. Diabetes
  6. Asthma and Exercise
  7. Back Pain
  8. Rheumatoid Arthritis
  9. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
