WHAT is Nordic Pole Walking?

This exercise will help you increase your workout exponentially by adding the poles to your walk. Burn more calories, use more muscles with less intensity for great benefits. Improve your posture, core and stamina Sounds unbelievable right? I know... but its true.

Here is what Judy said about her experience with Nordic Pole Walking. “I love it! And I really feel my posture is getting much better because of it. I go to a chiropractor once a month because of my 3 protruding discs in my lower back, scoliosis & tension in my Maximus Glutinous & neck. I went just after the 3 rd. lesson & he noticed a difference in my neck & scoliosis. He was pleased & very encouraging. I also like the fact that a 30 min. walk 3 times a week is so doable & so beneficial.”

It is not a crutch, it is a specific sport that is simple but effective. This sport helps to reduce the impact on our body and increase muscle strength, balance and mobility. It also improve many health issues such as diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
