Nordic Walking

Nordic walking has been dubbed cross country skiing without the snow.

The benefits are numerous, including …

  • fantastic cardio fitness in 20 minutes a day
  • 46% more calorie burn than ordinary walking
  • works arms, spine, core and legs to achieve a total body workout
  • reduces the load on the hip, knee and ankle – great after joint surgery
  • strengthens and tones the back and tummy (core)
  • a great cross training option
  • a fun way to exercise in the great outdoors

You can also find out more at the Nordic Walking NZ website, which has a heap of information about the benefits of Nordic Walking.
