Nordic walking, also called as north walking, is a new kind of sport that was born in Finland as a summer training method for cross-country skiers. Is has evolved into other sports such as Nordic Blading, Nordic Snowshoeing, Nordic Cruising, Nordic Running, Nordic Winter Walking and others.
Nordic walking uses special poles similar to ski poles. Poles are equipped with metal spikes or attachable rubber extensions depending on terrain. Practising Nordic walking involved 600 muscles in our body whereas the upper body takes up 30% of the work and so it relieves our legs.
Nordic walking is suitable for everyone, it is simple, inexpensive and keep our body shaped.
