In last week's blog I wrote about your plan for springtime physical activity and how what you choose to do will help support your summertime pursuits. If you missed it, you can read more here.
This week I want to provide a more direct example with you and share some specific exercises to support your movement.
It is an essential movement to our day to day life.
Once warmer weather arrives (whatever that means to you), there is an inclination to get out and walk in our neighbourhoods, community parks and anywhere there is fresh air (read: NATURE).
With an uptick in walking, have you considered trying something new?
You may ask, "Lisa, how can I make my walking new?"
Insert - poles.
And not just any poles. Nordic walking poles.
Nordic walking, as the name reveals, is a form of walking that started in Nordic or Scandinavian countries, more precisely from Finland. It was a form of exercise to support wintertime physical activity pursuit of cross-country skiing.
See the trend here.
Springtime activities supporting summertime activities. Summertime activities supporting wintertime activities.
It is all intertwined!
And today I would like to share with you three supportive movements for Nordic walking.
Not sure you want to try Nordic walking? Not sure how to do it?
I'm your gal. I've been pole walking since 2007.
I'm the one you may have seen walking with poles in the streets of Edmonton and wondered, "where are her skis?!"
And for you this Spring, how about trying some Nordic walking as a way to get stronger for your Summer walks and hikes in nature?
Well, consider this.
I am wanting to know if YOU would like to have a workshop or a series of sessions where I can teach YOU how to walk with Nordic walking poles.
I've got the poles, you've got the legs and so it would all work just perfectly!
Can you please complete this survey to let me know what would suit you best?
As always, I am here to support you on your physical activity journey. Will Nordic walking be a part of your journey?
Stay well and happy moving,
