Have you ever seen someone walking with poles and wondered, WHY? Did you know that in European countries, 15% of walkers use poles to get a better full body workout and increased health benefits! Would you like to learn about it and give it a try?
1. Nordic Pole Walking burns up to 46% more calories than exercise walking without poles or moderate jogging. 25-30% on average. Only have time for a 30 min walk? Adding poles turns it into a 55 min walk/workout.
2. Increases heart and cardiovascular training to 25%
3. Incorporates 90 % of all body muscles in one exercise and increases endurance of arm muscles, neck and shoulder.
