When you walk without poles, you activate muscles below the waist. When you add Nordic poles, you activate all of the muscles of the upper body as well. Nordic walking is also associated with reductions in fat mass, "bad" LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and waist circumference, and increases in "good" HDL cholesterol, endurance, muscle strength and flexibility, walking distance, cardiovascular fitness, and quality of life.

1:00 PM - 1:45 PM    Nordic Walking Program for Adults - Nordic Walking for Adults
Experience the health benefits of Nordic walking while meeting new people and having fun at this weekly program! All you need to do is show up to the Standish Memorial Park on Mondays at 1:00pm. Bring your own poles, or borrow ours. Wear proper footwear ,and bring a water bottle, sun protection, and a smile!  This peer-led program is FREE to anyone who wants to join. A limited number of Nordic walking poles are available to borrow, or bring your own if you have them! Call the office if you'd like to borrow a pair and we can set you up!Nordic walking combines cardiovascular exercise with a vigorous muscle workout for your shoulders, arms, core, and legs. When you walk without poles, you activate muscles below the waist. When you add Nordic poles, you activate all of the muscles of the upper body as well. Nordic walking is also associated with reductions in fat mass, "bad" LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and waist circumference, and increases in "good" HDL cholesterol, endurance, muscle strength and flexibility, walking distance, cardiovascular fitness, and quality of life.
