Glen Arbor, MI, November 19, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Free Nordic Ski Walking Clinics are coming to the Holiday Market Place Preview at the Glen Arbor Town Hall on Friday, November 28th from 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Free Nordic Ski Walking Clinics will also be offered at The Glen Arbor Holiday Market Place on Saturday, November 29th, at 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. – also located in the Glen Arbor Town Hall.
Walking with the perfect length poles and with the correct technique can help to radically reduce the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Walking with poles also burns more calories than regular walking and the poles add a tremendous amount of added balance and stability.
Real Nordic Walking Poles and instruction will be provided by Pete Edwards the owner/founder/coach of The American Nordic Walking System and www.SkiWalking.com – all poles are equipped with metal tips (for trails, the beach, snow and ice) and removable rubber tips (for indoor use, pavement and other hard surfaces).
One-piece walking poles from www.SkiWalking.com are safer, lighter and much more durable than cheap twist-locking adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles – that can collapse unexpectedly. Edwards custom fits poles to each individual’s height – No one size fits all.
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.
According to Nick Mahood, SWIX USA Nordic Walking Director, "Pete Edwards, www.SkiWalking.com's owner/founder/coach, has single handedly introduced thousands of Americans to Nordic Walking through his enthusiastic clinics! I have no doubt that Edwards is the #1 retailer of Nordic Walking Poles in the USA! You can quote me on that!"
