Origins of Nordic Walking

default

Since the early 20th century various forms of walking with poles have been used by Nordic cross-country skiers to maintain physical fitness over the summer months.

Now the technique does not simply replicate cross-country skiing – it has been improved, refined and simplified, as have the ergonomically designed Nordic Walking poles that we use today,  in order to provide an effective way to exercise outdoors.

Nordic Walking is now one of the fastest growing fitness activities in the world being used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and fun.

In Australia, Nordic walking is in its early days – this new activity is just beginning to become widely known and accepted. There are however, already a large number of dedicated and passionate enthusiasts who are regularly hitting our city and suburban footpaths,  beaches and beautiful nature trails with their specially designed fitness walking poles. The contagious enthusiasm of these people combined with qualified instructors and the proven popularity and success worldwide means that the Nordic Walking movement is set to skyrocket here.
