You can go Nordic walking on city streets or mountain trails. You can use the same streets, sidewalks, running tracks, malls, parks, or trails you would use for fitness walking. Don't walk on ice and try to avoid slippery or unstable surfaces like wet leaves or gravel. With Nordic walking, you can get a good workout in the morning before work, in the evening, or even on your lunch hour. The only equipment you need is your Nordic walking poles and a pair of walking shoes. Use the same safety precautions about terrain, lighting, and traffic that you would use when fitness walking or running.
