This is a group for Nordic Walkers and anyone interested in learning how to Nordic Walk.

Organized group walks and training sessions will take place at parks in and around the Evanston area, but additional parks will be added in neighboring cities as interest grows.

Nordic Walking is a method of fitness activity that incorporates walking with the addition of specially designed walking poles. Walking with Nordic Walking poles incorporates the use of the arms and upper body, allowing you to perform a full-body workout with lower impact and less effort than other fitness activities. Health Benefits of Nordic Walking

• Burns 20 to 40 percent more calories than regular walking alone. Engaging the upper body uses 90% of your muscle mass verses only 70% used during regular walking.

• Walking with poles encourages proper posture and takes pressure off the joints, which is especially beneficial for those with ankle, knee, hip and lower back pain.

• Acts as a weight-bearing exercise, increases upper body strength and mobility, improves core stability and posture and increases aerobic activity, even at slow speeds.

• Nordic Walking can be done by almost any adult, regardless of their current level of fitness.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
