Welcome Oakvillage - to the Nordic Team

I started using poles back in about 2011 - they are great at keeping posture good, making sure the chest is open for deep breathing and feels good to swing those arms. I find that I get less tired with the poles than just walking so I rarely walk now without Nordic poles.

Keep working on it - it does not take very long before you and the poles will move freely and easily without the need to 'think'.

Sounds great, John...I know that my posture improves when I'm polewalking regularly. Maybe it's those muscles you're feeling? emoticon Keep us posted on your progress!

Hey Oakvillage, welcome to the Team! That sounds exactly the same as when I started. Luckily, I found a group to walk with and also a class where we had a really good instructor tell us how to walk with the proper form. You don't have to have a teacher but if you can find one, it helps!

It really is a great addition to your fitness plan. If you have any questions or just want to chat, drop me a line!
