)-- The American Nordic Walking System and www.skiwalking.com are #1 in customer satisfaction and are the leading retailer of quality one-piece Nordic Walking Poles in the USA and Canada. Even Santa Claus has been spotted Nordic Walking with poles from The American Nordic Walking System and www.skiwalking.com – for health and fitness. And Santa Claus is teaming up with The American Nordic Walking System and www.SkiWalking.com
Santa Claus was originally Scandinavian and so is the fitness activity called Nordic Walking. Nordic Walking Poles can help to burn up to 40% more calories than regular walking. Over 6 million Europeans are walking with poles – in the cities, out in the country and up in the mountains. Originally Ski Walking with poles and hill bounding with poles were secrets of elite cross country ski racers when deprived of snow during the summer months. Today Nordic Walking Poles are being successfully and effectively use by individuals of all ages and all fitness levels. Real Nordic Walking Poles are equipped with comfortable Nordic Walking Straps and include removable rubber tips/paws for use on pavement and other hard surfaces. The metal tips are ideal for your favorite trail, the beach, snow and ice.
Nordic Walking Poles make perfect Holiday gifts. Nordic Walking Poles are not just an effective yet low-impact cross trainer for all types of athletes. Nordic Walking Poles are also helping with weight management and have proven successful with Weight Watchers, Tops and other weight management programs. Individuals with knee, hip and back issues have also found success walking with poles – including those with new knees, new hips and even rods in their backs. Nordic Walking poles also help to improve balance and stability – even for those with MS, Parkinson’s, Neuropathy, Osteoporosis, Scoliosis, Post Polio and other issues that affect balance and make walking a challenge.
Nordic Walking should play a key role in helping thousands of Americans find success with their New Year's Resolutions regarding improved fitness levels and/or weight loss.
Santa Claus and the staff at The American Nordic Walking System and www.skiwalking.com know that one-piece poles are safer, lighter and much more durable than cheap twist-locking adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles from China. Once Santa or the staff at The American Nordic Walking System and www.SkiWalking.com know the height of an individual the perfect length poles are selected and backed with a Perfect Length Guarantee.
Perfect length poles help individuals to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is biomechanically a good thing. This improved walking posture when combined with the unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action of walking with poles radically reduces the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is low impact and yet provides a highly effective workout - burning more calories and working more muscle groups than regular walking.
Santa Claus and the folks at The American Nordic Walking System and www.SkiWalking.com are ready for Black Friday, the Holiday Rush and for those with Nordic Walking Poles on their Christmas lists.
