Grab on to a Nordic Walking Workout

The folks you see cruising the seawall, speed strolling and power walking using slick walking sticks that look like ski poles, may know something the rest of us don’t.  This curious urban hiking accessory, is actually giving the Nordic Walker quite the work out.  Turns out Nordic walking burns up to 46% more calories than regular walking! With each stride you’re applying force to your poles. Proper form engages the whole body, including the core, increasing your workout by as much as 25% and working 90% of your muscles.  We love it because this high powered workout is easy on the joints. Those who do it report improved posture and better balance and stability.  Come check out our selection of Nordic walking poles designed by the North Vancouver company Urban Poling!
