NORDIC FITNESS WALKING: Burn more calories in less time
4 week program
With the holidays right around the corner, wouldn't it be nice to burn extra calories and reduce stress while enjoying a smart physical outdoor activity with maximum health benefits? Nordic Walking is easy to learn and best of all it combines fun and convenience. Nordic Walking is like fitness walking with specialized walking poles. Our starter clinic is perfect for all ages and abilities so now is the perfect time to discover what Finland fitness buffs have known for years! Nordic Walking burns up to 40% more calories, increases upper body strength, improves balance, and reduces stress on your hips, knees and spine. The first of four starter clinics will meet at the York High School track and will begin with information on the history of Nordic Walking, pole fitting, and then we will head out on our first Nordic Walk. Subsequent classes will meet off-site so we can tour and enjoy the best walking spots right here in our own town. Poles will be provided by and returned to the instructor.
Lauren DeLong is the owner of York Nordic and a certified Nordic Walking instructor. Lauren's passion for Nordic Walking began when her mother had hip replacement surgery and the surgeon recommended Nordic Walking as a way for her mother to maintain balance while strengthening her hip during recovery. She teaches Nordic Walking around Southern Maine on both Long Sands Beach in York and on Ogunquit Beach. She has designed and manufactured her own poles which will be provided for use during the clinic. www.YorkNordic.com is a great resource on the history of Nordic Walking, the scientific research behind the benefits, as well as helpful tips on proper form. She is excited to share her passion for this sport with others.
