Nordic Walking in Majella National Park




Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking, it makes something we learn to do as babies twice as effective. Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking:

-The use of poles means the upperbody muscles are used as well as the legs;

-The use of poles help to propel the walker along, this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by poles makes it feel easier.

Nordic Walking is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upperbody. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.

Nordic Walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world and is used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and fun!

Nordic Walking technique MUST be learnt correctly if the participant is to get the most out of the activity. The only full correct technique that ensures the whole body works efficiently is only taught by Italian Nordic Walking School qualified instructors!
