Nordic Pole Walking is a Total Body Wellness Sport
It has been known for 50 years that Cross Country Skiing is the most effective physical exercise for cardiovascular improvement and total body muscle strengthening. Cross country ski athletes have the best physical results from all sports. Why leave this positive effect to a few athletes when everybody can do it, everywhere, and anytime of the year?

3. Rejuvenation of Hormones
Cortisol is a stress hormone that produces glucose to prepare us for physical activity like when our forefathers had to fight or escape from a dangerous situation. Today our stress comes in many forms while sitting at our desks, working on the computer, sitting behind the wheel of our car. The only difference now is that our bodies are not using this form of glucose made available to our bodies to exercise because we are staying sedentary. This unburned glucose produced by stress is then transferred into “fat reserves” that are stored in our abdominal area. Nordic Pole walkers show a significant lower level of “Cortisol” than those who do not exercise.
Insulin increases when your blood sugar increases caused from eating too many Carbohydrates or from stress. The bad news: Insulin lowers your blood sugar, but without physical activity it turns into fat. The good news: Nordic Pole Walking burns a large amount of fat (calories) and prevents Insulin resistance and Diabetes.
