NORDIC SKI WALKING FUN FACTS – Walking, Hiking & Trekking With Poles:
* Walking with poles is gentle on the shins, knees, hips and back – and provides an effective aerobic workout. * Ski Walking is kind of like cross-country skiing, but NO skis. NO snow required. * Nordic Ski Walking poles are modified hiking poles. Poles from SKIWALKING.COM are custom made in Lillehammer, Norway and come with patented comfortable straps, durable carbide tips for off-road and removable rubber tips for use on hard surfaces (indoor or outdoor on pavement). * Nordic Ski Walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in Europe. Over 6 million Europeans are Nordic Ski Walking everyday. * Nordic Ski Walking burns up to 40% more calories than just plain walking. * Unlike walking, running and biking, Nordic Ski Walking works the arms, shoulders and abs – providing a more effective workout. * Nordic Ski Walking provides all the low impact benefits of walking, while reducing knee and joint strain, burning more calories, working the upper body, increasing oxygen consumption and providing a more effective aerobic workout. * Nordic Ski Walking Poles are ideal for ALL ages and ALL fitness levels – athletes, seniors and even folks with balance issues (including MS and Parkinson’s). * Nordic Ski Walking produces up to a 46% increase in energy consumption (Cooper Institute, Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sports 2002 publication). * Walking poles have been used at the University of Wisconsin in the rehabilitation of patients after myocardial infarction (MI). In the MI study, the oxygen uptake increased on average 21% compared to walking without poles.
