Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking is an ideal group sport. The theme is: Walk and Talk! The achievement aspect is, compared to the other sports, not the main focus as such a Nordic Walking Competition does not exist.

Nordic Walking does not emphasize what the human accomplishes in terms of sport, but how sport profits humans. In addition, Nordic Walking offers vitality, relaxation, natural adventure, and happiness through activity and fitness up to old age.

What are the origins of this sport?

Nordic Walking was already used in the 30’s as a training method for cross country skiers during the summer. From these experiences, sport scientists and sport doctors developed this new trendy sport.

What are the positive effects of Nordic Walking?

The arm-stick movements require the work of the entire muscle apparatus, increase pulse-rate, as well as increase metabolism. Nordic Walking increases the calorie consumption and strengthens the shoulder-, back-, and chest-muscles. This type of sport is a spring of youth for body and soul.

Target Group

Nordic Walking is a type of sport for especially those individuals who do not want to or cannot run, but would like to promote their health and fitness. Nordic Walking allows people of all ages to start a less strenuous condition-training. Furthermore, individuals who have not been working out a lot in the past can begin this type of sport without any big problems, because neither muscles or joints, nor the heart-circulation system is being overwhelmed.

Equipment

The Nordic Walking Stick

Clothes

The clothes should not only protect the individual from wind and bad weather, but should also absorb the sweat from the body and release it to the fresh air. This means that not only should the sport underwear be functioning, but also the exterior layer of clothes should consist of a porous, but water proof material. The layer in the middle should allow for sweat to be released to the outer air. The training jacket and pans should allow for enough room to move.

Shoes

For Nordic Walking light trekking shoes or running shoes should be adequate. The shoes should be lined during the winter and should stabilize and absorb shock.

The healthy aspect
