Not sure how to keep fit….. Well a perfect way to keep fit if you love the outdoors is to try Nordic Walking.
What is Nordic walking?
Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking.
Nordic Walking is a specific fitness and is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and fun.
What do you need?
A set of Nordic walking poles
The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs
The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier.
Where can I buy Nordic Walking Poles from?
Look no further, Breaking Free sells Nordic Walking poles!!
Here is what we stock at Breaking Free:
The Nordic Spin is a two-part telescopic pole that can be adjusted from 100 - 130cm. With a high strength, low weight aluminium shaft, the Spin is a fantastic all round Nordic walking pole. The Spin features Leki's Trigger 1 grip click system, which allows the user to detach the hand strap at a simple press of a button. Like all Leki Nordic poles, the Spin has both super grippy rubber pole tip for use on pavements, and hard-wearing carbide tips for use off the beaten track.
The sporty 'Supreme' is a great recommendation for starting off or changing over to a Vario model, since the light aluminium pole does not only have balanced fixtures such as the Trigger 1 CorTec grip with the Trigger 1 strap, the Power grip pad rubber buffer and the super-strong Super Lock system which all provide a high level of comfort, but also features a fresh, sporty design.
The brand new Leki Supreme Shark is the new model pole for 2014. It replaces the bestselling Leki Prestige. Great Value adjustable pole with cork handle, Leki Shark quick release strap system and comes with the Power grip paws.
