Be Smart about your physical activity

With all of the ingredients for a smart workout: convenience, limited costs, maximum health benefits and of course the main ingredient which is fun, it’s no mystery why Nordic Walking is spreading like quick fire!  According to American Nordic Walking Association, “Walking with your poles as little as thirty minutes a day, three times a week, can help lower your blood pressure, reduce your cholesterol, and help to relieve back, shoulder and neck pain. After only a few weeks you will notice the difference - more relaxed muscles, better conditioning and better health.” http://www.anwa.us/html/4.php

Young athletes exert energy through intense physical activity while seniors enjoy boosting their heart rate with walking.  Nordic Walking is a perfect physical activity that individuals are doing every day, young, old, men, women, athletes and non athletes. 

The convenience of Nordic Walking is that it is not affected by the weather or rising gym memberships.  Whether it is sunny, snowing, windy, or cold with a pair of sneakers and appropriate workout clothing, you can use your Nordic Poles anywhere to Nordic Walk.  It is rare that one exercise could cover such a large array of people, fitness levels, climates, time of year and any surface area.  This makes Nordic Walking the smart choice for physical activity.
