Lauren DeLong is the owner of York Nordic and a certified Nordic Walking instructor by the American Nordic Walking Association. Lauren’s passion for Nordic Walking began when her mother had hip replacement surgery and the surgeon recommended Nordic Walking as a way for her mother to maintain balance while strengthening her hip during recovery. She teaches Nordic Walking throughout New England including the beaches of York and Ogunquit.
Lauren decided to design and manufacture her own poles after finding most poles lacked quality, style, and key features for different age groups. The poles are sold nationally and have been used in classes and health studies throughout the US. She is excited to share her passion for this sport with you.
