Walking the smarter way! Nordic Pole walking began in the Scandinavian countries more than two decades ago. It has since become widely done in Europe and the United Kingdom amongst all age groups as a safe and effective form of low impact exercise. Working 90% of the body’s muscles, versus only 50% used with regular walking, Nordic Pole Walking can help participants achieve many health benefits such as weight loss, lowered blood pressure and blood sugar control. Additionally, for those who need it, the poles can increase balance and stability while walking. Nordic Pole Walking is beneficial across most ages and abilities, and provides a total body and cardiovascular workout all in ONE activity. Thirty minutes of Nordic Pole Walking = 55 minutes of regular walking.
At Best Health Physiotherapy we have 5 Certified Nordixx Pole Walking Instructors. We run regular free introductory clinics with loaner poles. Learn more about how Nordic Pole Walking can benefit you, receive some instruction in proper Nordic Pole Walking technique, and practice with the poles.
Best Health Physiotherapy offers regular classes weekly. Each class is led by a Certified Instructor and includes a warm up and cool down appropriate to the group. The classes are structured for those who have completed the free clinic and want to continue walking with poles. Instructors provide feedback and continued instruction in technique to assist you in getting the best effect from your Nordic Pole Walking. Classes are offered at $10 per class or a 6 class pass for $50.
