Nordic Pole Walking


Benefits of Pole Walking


The use of poles can increase the intensity of your workout by 46% in comparison to regular walking.  The strengthening that results can reduce back pain and muscle tension.  It also decreases the load placed on joints contributing to a more enjoyable exercise routine.  This form of exercise can also combat the effects of osteoporosis and increase cardiovascular fitness.  Pole walking itself is a fun way to exercise and relieve stress.
