NEW! NEW! NEW!

For more details and to register, click here https://nordicpolewalkingvictoria.ca/calendar/

SAVE THIS DATE:  Oct 27…Autumn Classic.  If you have had one Learn lesson and have poles, you are invited to this year end fun event!

NORDIC STYLE POLE WALKING LOOKS LIKE THIS!

Elegant, in alignment, powerful yet relaxed,  easy on the feet/knees/hips, and using 90% of the body’s muscles for maximum calorie burn and health benefits.  IT SHOULD LOOK EASY, RELAXED, EFFORTLESS.  You can’t see that 90% of my muscles are working, and that the “workload” is actually huge!  It is a very unique exercise. Like every new skill it takes time/practice to make it look smooth and easy.

Note:  My legs and arms are much longer than yours, and my stride length is longer than many people.  So don’t be fooled!  The key point to focus on in this video is that my arm swings from the shoulder, with mounting pressure, “to the back wall”  with every swing.  The pole tip responds by lifting itself up and replanting.  I am completely relaxed and have learned how to apply force effectively.  Look at how relaxed my hands are.

Many people see this video and think they can grab poles and just do it.  HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT TO MAXIMIZE THE BENEFITS OF THIS EXERCISE, take a LEARN LESSON (or PRIVATE LESSON) to see if you like Nordic Pole Walking, then join the BOOTCAMP to strengthen the right muscles and practice all the details to learn this SKILL.

THE DIFFERENCE IN POLES….EXPLAINED!

Using the right tool for the right job makes a lot of difference.
