Nordic Walking Lake Maggiore

Nordic Walking originates from Finland during the Thirties.
It was practiced as a summer training for cross country skiing, but it is only on 1997, thanks to the cooperation between a Finnish student and a manufacturer of poles, that the new sport called Nordic Walking starts to be practiced as Fitness activity. After the technique of this sport has been improved: combined with strengthening, stretching and coordination exercises, it makes this activity, that involves 85%-90% of muscles.

The technique is based on a correct and natural gait, where first of all posture must be correct.
Body must be lined up and steady, shoulders relaxed, the pace quite wide and the foot support must include a complete roll. Using special poles it is possible to give a push and then boost the pace.
This activity requires a correct and complete breathing. For all these reasons Nordic Walking is a very beneficial activity for body and mind.
It is important to learn how to transfer these skills in our everyday life.

The Hills overlooking Lake Maggiore represents the ideal setting for this motivational activity, along the paths of the beautiful Ossola Valley, and Val Grande, with the assistance of an environmental guide and specialized coaches of the Nordic Walking Italian School.
