What is Nordic Walking?

Nordic Walking is a highly effective low-impact fitness activity that offers benefits for weight control and wellness. Our genuine Nordic Walking Poles with thumb hole, hand straps, and full size rubber feet enable you to incorporate over 90% of all your body muscles as you walk.

The logic of Nordic Walking is simple: normal walking utilizes muscles in the lower half of the body while pole walking is a whole-body activity that uses muscles in the back, arms, shoulders and neck. The more muscles you work out, the more calories you burn; the more blood sugar you burn down; the more your metabolism is enhanced by using the poles.
Want to give this a try? You can borrow Nordic Walking Poles at the Windsor Library! For more information on Nordic walking, visit the Nordic Walking NS website.
