Nordic Walking Workshop

Saturday, September 15, 2018

Learn Nordic Walking from Dr. Leroy Hurt, Associate Dean, Community Engagement, University of Alabama.

When done correctly, Nordic walking can burn up to 40 percent more calories than regular walking, reduce knee and joint stress, boost oxygen consumption (which, in turn, benefits the brain), and help realign the body after a day hunched at a desk.

Stationary Bicycle uses 30-40% of muscles involved.
Walking/Jogging uses 40-50% of muscles involved.
Nordic Pole Walking uses 90% of muscles involved. And you can do it anywhere you can walk.
