Nordic Walking is perfect for people that want or need to get more active! It is simple to learn, suitable for people that have been inactive for a while or have medical conditions such as:
• Back, Shoulder or Neck problems
• Osteoarthritis and Osteoporosis
• Diabetes (type 2)
• Stress and Anxiety
• High Blood Pressure
It is gentle and a great way to gently encourage full body movement whilst the poles help to reduce pressure on the knees and joints and help propel the walker along hence making it feel easier than it really is.
Often it is fear of aggravating a medical condition that puts people off taking up exercise – many have over done it in an attempt to get fit and find themselves less active than ever. Nordic Walking really is one of the best ways to gently increase activity without the risk of over doing things.
