Exercise is a key to diabetes control! And walking with poles has been proven to be very effective at improving health and fitness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta say that increased physical activity can help prevent risk factors for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some forms of cancer.
According to the Physical Activity and Health Report by the Surgeon General, moderate regular exercise has been found to be associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular diseases, some forms of cancer, and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.
Pete Edwards, the owner/founder/coach of The American Nordic Walking System and SKIWALKING.COM Nordic Walking Poles, will host free Nordic Walking clinics. Walking with poles provides a more effective workout than regular walking – basically turbo charging the average walking campaign. Walking with poles can burn up to 40% more calories than regular walking!
Nordic Walking’s winning combination of improved posture, unique 4-Wheel-Drive-type action and the shock absorbing benefits of the poles help many individuals to walk comfortably again. Nordic Walking Poles are proven to help those with balance issues, knee issues or new knees, hip issues or new hips, back issues (including those with rods in their back), weight issues, multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's (PD), neuropathy, arthritis, bursitis, scoliosis, lumbar, stenosis, post polio, osteoporosis and other limitations to walking. Nordic Walking poles are helping thousands of Americans get off the couch, successfully get outside, experience better balance and effectively launch much needed walking campaigns.
