Urban Poling Inc. was recently featured on Today’s Parent’s blog. Here’s an excerpt from their fantastic story:
“Actually, I’ve been Nordic walking for some time and have really taken to it. While I did feel, and probably look, a little funny as I got the hang of it over my first few walks, once I did, there was no stopping me. In fact, I enjoy it so much that I have become a certified Nordic walking instructor and my company, Everfit, will begin offering Nordic Walkfit classes in the fall.”
Head over to their site to read the full article.
Use the standard rhythm and technique, but swing both arms forward at the same time planting the boot tips slightly behind the handles. Then, keeping your arms straight, press down on the base of the handles, walk between your poles and feel your arms extend past your thighs and behind your body.
