What we're about
NORDIC POLE WALKING IS A LOW-IMPACT OUTDOOR EXERCISE THAT CAN BURN 46% MORE CALORIES OVER JUST WALKING AND CAN BE PERFORMED BY ANYONE ON SOFT OR HARD SURFACES. It is a huge outdoor sport in Europe and was originally created as summer training by cross country skiers in Finland.
JOIN OUR NORDIC POLE WALKING (or POLE WALKING or NORDIC WALKING) WALKS ON THE BEACH IN NAPLES, SOUTH-WEST FLORIDA. We are a diverse group of walkers, including men & women who are interested in active exercise - as this is not just a stroll on the beach.

SATURDAYS 7:30 A.M. from 14th Ave South Beach Access on Naples Beach to Gordon Pass & back.
TUESDAYS 5:30 P.M. (Mid Oct to end of March) from 14th Ave South Beach Access along Port Royal Beach.
