December 8, 2006, Newsletter Issue #17: What is Nordic walking?

Tip of the Week

Nordic walking is a specific form of walking with the use of poles. People have been using hiking sticks for a long time, and we can be sure that many people tried walking with their ski poles to help with balance. Still, Nordic walking as a sport or fitness activity is fairly recent, It started with cross-country skiers who wanted to say in skiing shape during the summer. There are an estimated half million Nordic walkers in Finland, a country with many cross-country skiers. Nordic walking has become an independent activity, finding popularity in Japan, the United States,and many other countries. Nordic walking now appeals to people who have never strapped on a pair of skis, along with those who want to maintain their cross-country skiing skills.
