Nordic Walking is a completely revolutionary full body exercise concept. It’s fun and it takes place in the great outdoors. By using the Nordic Walking poles, you increase your heart rate on average 10 – 15% more than normal walking. This means that you can burn up over 400 calories per hour, much more than normal walking which only burns approximately 280 calories per hour.
Nordic Walking can be compared to cross country skiing but you don’t need skis or snow. It is well known that cross country skiing has been long recognised as being one of the most effective body workouts for burning calories and building cardio-vascular fitness combined with reduced stress on your joints.
