Benefits of Nordic Walking:

The fitness and health benefits of Nordic Walking are significantly greater than regular walking, trekking or even jogging, with scientific research from Europe and the USA proving that Nordic Walking:

Activates 90% of the body's muscles

Burns up to 46% more calories than regular walking

Increases aerobic effect by up to 25% compared to regular walking

Decreases load and strain on the lower body

Tones upper arms, shoulders and back muscles

Improves lateral mobility of the spine

Develops core stability and strength

Promotes an upright posture

These benefits are achieved through the use of specially designed poles and a properly learned and performed Nordic Walking technique, whereby the poles are used as a resistance tool to engage the upper body. The result is a low impact, high results, total body exercise.

As a low impact walking exercise, Nordic Walking is something that can be done and enjoyed individually or as a group activity, anywhere a person can normally walk.
