Nordic Walking is an outdoors physical activity, which is good for heart and circulation, strengthens arms and shoulders, improves posture of the back and tones up gluteus and abdominals.Born in the Scandinavian countries many years ago, it was initially practiced by cross-country skiing athletes during the dry summer-autumn training. Thereafter, it was refined and developed in a real fitness exercise.

It is a sport for everyone and all year round. It offers to fans of fitness an easy, inexpensive and fun way to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.
