Nordic Walking is a healthy physical activity which, if applied with a correct and constant technique, helps our body to strengthen itself, keep its weight under control and get toned. Nordic Walking consists of a smooth, harmonious, natural, effortless walk, that can also be applied easily into everyday life.
Although it is not a difficult sport to learn, we recommend that you attend courses taught by qualified instructors so that you can learn the correct technique to practice.
You can practice it anywhere, on grassy paths, on city streets, on hill slopes, on beaches, with the energy and intensity most appropriate to your body.
There are very few athletic activities that can boast the characteristics of Nordic Walking. It is truly suitable for everyone: from children to the elderly. You can practice it alone or with others.

What do you need to practice Nordic Walking?

In addition to a course to learn the technique, you need:
1 – NORDIC-WALKING POLES: they are essential for Nordic walking since they accompany the movement of the walk and give the adequate thrust to get the torso, shoulders and arms to work. You will obviously have to choose the ones that best suit your level. If you are a beginner, we recommend the aluminum poles with a round tip. If, instead, you are already at a more advanced level, get a carbon model with a tungsten tip (round or blunt).
2 – FLEXIBLE NORDIC-WALKING SHOES: in Nordic walking, the movement of the foot follow a precise technique. It consists of three phases: heel strike, foot roll and push forward through the toes. It is, therefore, very important to choose flexible shoes with a good grip to accompany the movement of the foot in a fluid and correct way, even on grassy and wet grounds.
3 – SPORTS CLOTHING: If you are just starting out, you don’t need a technical outfit. Wear lightweight, comfortable clothing that doesn’t hinder the movements of the arms and shoulders.
4 – THE BACKPACK: It is an indispensable accessory! Use it to carry a bottle of water and a snack. Never start training without having water with you: hydration is essential in any sport. In addition, you can also bring other items with you, such as gloves, a hat/cap, sunglasses, a waterproof jacket, etc
