What is Nordic Walking?


Nordic Walking is a sport originally practiced by skiers to keep fit during the summer months. It has now become a very popular activity, suitable for people of any age and with any level of training who want to keep fit, tone their muscles, lose weight or improve their health.

Why practice Nordic Walking?

Many doctors agree that Nordic walking is one of the most effective cardiovascular workouts because it works on all major muscle groups in the body.

Nordic walking is also great for weight loss. Using Nordic walking poles, heart rate increases on average by 10-15% more than with normal walking. This means that you can burn over 400 calories per hour, much more than normal walking, which only burns 280 calories.
