Unlike walking, or even running, Nordic Walking, which is walking with specially designed poles provides you with a whole-body exercise – lower body, upper body, plus a great aerobic workout – comparable to Nordic, or cross-country skiing.
Nordic Walking, or pole walking is really taking off in Europe. Millions are participating in this great, whole-body exercise. More and more people in the U.S. are also discovering it and wondering why they haven’t started Nordic Walking before.
In most countries the English name – Nordic Walking – has been adopted and kept, but the Swedes have dubbed it stavgång, in Norway and Denmark it is stavgang, and to the Estonians it is kepikönd.
If you already walk, power walk, hike, run, or cycle, Nordic Walking will enhance your fitness level. In addition, walking with poles is a lot more interesting and engrossing than plain walking.
