Nordic Walking is the latest fitness trend that originated in Finland and has become
enormously popular in other parts of Europe as well.
The huge boost in popularity is due not least of all to the positive results that come from Nordic Walking:
up to 46% more energy is burned than during regular walking
total body workout involves 90% of all muscles
relieves muscle tension around the neck and shoulders
training for endurance, strength, flexibility and coordination
low-stress workout for the knees and other joints
improved balance even on wet and slippery surfaces
exercise easily sustained within one's optimal pulse range
For successful Nordic Walking it is essential not only to learn the proper technique (e.g. in a Nordic Walking course sponsored by one's health fund), but likewise to have the right equipment. We carry
Nordic Walking poles from the leading manufacturers, Exel and
Swix. Market leader Exel offers poles made from specially wound carbon/fiberglass that stand out for their remarkable stability, light weight and elasticity. A higher carbon content in the glass fiber/carbon blend results in better shock absorption and therefore greater comfort. The manufacturer Swix has established itself as a close competitor in the Nordic Walking market and also makes high quality carbon/fiberglass poles.
Which pole is right for me?
A good rule of thumb for pole length is to multiply one's height x 0.66.
