Nordic Walking/Urban Poling: Offering Unforgettable Gentle Adventure.

Nordic Walking mimics cross-country skiing, but without the skis! It TURBO CHARGES walking, turning into a total body workout that utilizes virtually every muscle in your body in a gentle yet effective way. It promotes good posture, burns MEGA CALORIES, provides exceptional stability on all sorts of terrain, and off-loads stress from the lower body.
Whether you are super fit or just embarking on a fitness program, Nordic Walking is a perfect physical activity choice.
