Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking provides a great workout outdoors and can be done by anybody, anywhere: from health to sport. Ideal activity for people that haven’t exercised for a while, some GP Referral or people who dislike traditional sports or gym activities.

It is a physical activity consisting of walking with poles similar to ski poles; thought the specific technique combines of walking with simultaneous core and upper body conditioning similar to Nordic skiing. The result is a full-body workout that can enhance the walking experience.





Benefits

  • Increased overall strength and endurance in the core muscles and the entire upper body
  • Significantly increases in heart rate at a given pace (5-17beats/minute higher).
  • Energy consumption increases 20-46% compared with walking.
  • Burns about 400 calories per hour, compared with 280 calories per hour for normal walking.
  • Improved balance and stability with use of the poles.
  • Increased stride length and walking speed.
  • Significant unweighting of hip, knee and ankle joints (depending on the style used).
  • Releases muscle tension and pain in the neck, backs and shoulder region.
