You must have heard about or seen people Nordic walking somewhere near you?! It’s walking but not as we know it… You use special Nordic walking poles to work the muscles in your upper body as well as in your legs, making it a really good all-round exercise. The poles also give you support so even though it’s more of a work out than regular walking, it doesn’t feel like it as you get extra support and propulsion from the poles.
Nordic walking is pretty big. You can find lots of information, research, how to do it and how to find groups near you on the internet.
The only thing you need are some poles which you can now purchase on the website from us: Buy Nordic Walking Poles Here
