Nordic walking

New service - studying Nordic walking technique and doing Nordic walking is introduced in the Medical Rehabilitation Center. Studying and trainings are held in groups as well as individually.

Nordic walking technique (walking with stick/poles) is a kind of recreational walking. Due to the use of the sticks the load is slightly heavier on the relevant muscle groups and cardiovascular system. This allows to increase the load on arm muscles and back, and on the other hand to unload the joints of legs and feet. These poles also help develop and monitor the pace of movement, as well as to facilitate the process of walking. In average such walking involves around 90% of your muscles and burns 46% more calories than regular walking. Therefore, wellness effect is achieved easier if walking with sticks, faster and without apparent effort. To achieve this we need to acquire special technique: learn how to put your foot properly down on the ground while your hands are working synchronically. Without this, lesson would be simply ineffective. Nordic walking practically has no counter-indications, and is often used for medical purposes and for weight loss. In doing so, it happens in a comfortable environment and without unnecessary stress. It is fitness with fun and pleasure.

Unlike other types of fitness, the full potential of Nordic walking has not yet been studied. Every year new research data comes out, opening a variety of application areas of the walking with sticks/poles. The main advantage of Nordic walking is its availability: it has no contraindications and limitations (neither age wise nor physical). Nordic walking is more safe than running and more effective than just walking. When using special sticks during the movement over 90% of the muscles are working. During walking over 46% calories more are burned in comparison to regular walking but with no damage to joints and spine.
