Nordic Walking

In Nordic walking, poles are near to the body. The trunk is oriented in the walking direction and the hands sweep along the body what generates a swiveling motion of the arms and exercises the muscles.

Specific features of Nordic walking:

Keeping the muscle systems of this body part in good condition, particularly the abdominal and back muscles, is very important for the proper body keeping and prevention of pain and backbone disorders.

2. In Nordic walking you burn by even 46% more energy than in normal walking. This is why fat stock reduces very much faster with regular exercise of this sport discipline.

3. Nordic Walking reduces load to joints even by 30% in comparison with walking without poles. It is appreciated particularly by people suffering from arthritis and other joint diseases.
