Nordic Walking at Senior Expo in Suttons Bay

Sat, Jun  7, 2008 - By Pete Edwards

FREE Nordic Ski Walking Lessons will be offered during the Senior Expo at Suttons Bay High School on June 17th.

Walking with poles burns more calories than regular walking and the poles add a tremendous amount of added balance and stability.

One-piece walking poles are safer, lighter and much more durable than cheap twist-locking adjustable length /telescoping /collapsible poles.

Perfect length poles help us to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is biomechanically a good thing. This improved walking posture when combined with the unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action of walking with poles radically reduces the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is low impact and yet provides a highly effective workout - burning more calories and working more muscle groups than regular walking.
