Think of all of those elliptical trainers, exercise bikes and other fitness equipment, which are gathering dust in people’s basements, closets and garages. I have a couple of those items as well and they do not seem to be getting much use around here at all.
My Nordic Walking poles in turn get used almost every day. Surprised? Don’t be. Nordic Walking poles are compact, relatively inexpensive and very effective fitness devices, which actually tend to get USED and to a great advantage.
They are in fact “pocket-sized gyms”, enabling all the exercise that all of those other devices provide and which, in addition, can be taken anywhere.
For those, who would much rather exercise in the great outdoors, instead of their living rooms, or basements, or in stuffy gyms, Nordic Walking offers the optimal combination of both aerobic and muscle exercise for the entire body.
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.
It also saves wear and tear on your legs and knees, while providing balanced exercise for both your lower and upper body.
Haven’t you ever wondered if it would be possible to also exercise your arms, back, abs, shoulders and chest, while walking? As it turns out – you CAN!
