and the American Nordic Walking System has relocated to Empire, Michigan - the home of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. According to Pete Edwards, owner/founder, the exciting move is complete and there was no interruption in service as their customer satisfaction ratings remain steady at 100% positive.
SkiWalking.com is North America's leading retailer of quality Nordic Walking Poles. It is also the exclusive distributor of all sizes of quality one-piece Nordic Walking Poles SWIX of Norway and EXEL of Finland. SkiWalking.com is also the only source for the rubber Nordic Walking tips/asphalt paws made by both SWIX and EXEL. SkiWalking.com ships quality one-piece walking poles that are sized correctly to each individual's height world-wide every day.
The American Nordic Walking System is the company's educational branch. Edwards has been coaching runner and skiers for over 25 years and was able to combine the best biomechanical elements of running, skiing, trekking, hiking and ski walking into the American Nordic Walking System. The American Nordic Walking System differs from other Nordic Walking teaching systems in that the goal is to eliminate all unnecessary joint angles with the primary emphasis on good biomechanics, improved posture and a radical reduction in stress to the weight bearing joints. Options are provided to increase or decrease calorie burn and intensity. There is an ideal level of exertion for any age and any fitness level. There is no leaning into the hill while hill climbing and no sitting back while descending. The American Nordic Walking System also provides instruction for those with balance issues.
Seniors with balance issues should especially avoid cheap/flimsy collapsible poles and opt for durable and user friendly one-piece poles that sized correctly and prove t be safer, lighter and much more durable than cheap/flimsy 2-piece and 3-piece collapsible poles from China.
Perfect length poles help us 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.
