Nordic Walking is all the rage in the United States, Europe and China, and there are currently millions of people of all ages engaged in Nordic Walking. More and more health clubs, spas and resorts in the US have added Nordic Walking to their class offerings.

Nordic Walking offers a slew of benefits. Research shows that by adding two poles and the Nordic Walking technique to your stroll, you can improve your overall health in many different ways: burn up 46% more calories, build upper body and core strength, reduce stress on the joints and etc.

Most people can pick up the basics from a qualified coach as nothing beats a hands-on lesson from a real-life instructor. Lace up those sneakers, grab those poles, and soon, you’ll wonder how you ever walked without them.
