"Nordic walking – healthy benefits of walking"
Nordic walking is derived from cross-country skiing, and its principle is based on using two specially-designed poles whilst walking. This means that during the workout the upper body is utilised, resulting in a more intensive cardio workout compared to normal walking. However, because of the support from the walking sticks, you do not feel you are working out at such a high intensity, meaning a lower 'perceived rate of exertion'. In addition, the exercise works the shoulders, upper chest and back muscles through a full range of movement, extending muscles that are often tight. The poles are also good support and provide stability if you have balance, knee or leg problems.
Try this sport activity and enjoy the colourful autumn surroundings. Under the guidance of our professional trainers, you walk in a group at the same speed and tempo.
You can buy specially-designed Nordic Walking poles at the reception of Hotel Central for EUR 29/ DEP 725.
