It's all about Strength!

Nordic Walking is a year-round, outdoor activity that burns up to 46% more calories than standard walking, activates the core and sculpts arms and shoulders. In fact, Nordic walking uses 90 percent of your muscles—especially those underused upper body muscles and contributes to great posture and improved balance. The smooth rhythmic action of walking presents a distraction from everyday concerns and lifts your mood. It is also a terrific way to stay active with all members of the family, young and old alike. It is an all-in-one energizing, mood boosting, cardio and muscle building fitness activity for all ages and abilities.


Learn the benefits of walking with Nordic Walking fitness poles, the differences between fitness poles and hiking poles, and how to set their height to obtain optimal results when walking with them. We will then take them to the street and learn the “plant, push, and propel” technique that makes this activity such a great full body, cardio workout.  We will also add in some upper and lower body strength and core conditioning exercises too!  We will incorporate trees, park benches, playground equipment, hills, and steps with our own body weight to increase the benefits of Nordic walking even further.
