Many people have not yet heard about pole walking. Don’t get it confused with other types of exercises using poles…hahahaha. Nordic Pole Walking is like cross-country skiing without the snow. Walk on sidewalks, low tide beaches, country road using two lightweight poles. This exercise uses 90% of the body’s muscles in a way that is easy, fun, and do-able. Moderate and persistent exercise is the prescription for health…and you can happily do this with Nordic Pole Walking. Pole Walking for three 30-minute sessions will give you good health. Pole walking every other day is great. Up your time for pole walking to 60 minutes and your health will flourish.

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT NORDIC POLE WALKING WITH LINDA? This comment from Laurie is typical: “Nordic Pole Walking is so different than I had thought! I look forward to more training with Linda and just getting out with people. Linda is a great coach and full of enthusiasm. I had a great time. I would recommend everyone to try it out no matter what level of athleticism.” And Bill says, “Walking is boring. This is fun!”
Thank you to Tiffanie who made this comment after learning how to Nordic Pole Walk on Willow’s Beach last weekend:
“ What a wonderful surprise. I had the view going into pole walking that it was only for the senior population, boy was I wrong! It’s a great workout when done properly. Within an hour I felt like I had a very good grasp on nordic pole walking. After having been in a car accident a few years back I have been looking for some exercise that would strengthen my lower back – I found IT!! I love walking but pole walking is like gliding, it’s amazing. Come on out and try it, you won’t be dissapointed. ”
