If you haven’t heard of Nordic Walking, also known as Nordic Walk, it’s important to know that it’s a real and effective sport that improves your overall physical condition and tones your body’s muscles.
What is Nordic Walking?
It’s practiced by adding the use of Nordic walking sticks to your natural walk, which, when used correctly, activate the majority of your body’s muscles.
These specific sticks, often mistakenly referred to as Nordic walking snowshoes, are actually used for “pushing” rather than support. This means that once you have learned the correct technique, all parts of your body participate in the movement in a well-coordinated manner.
Nordic walking can be practiced by anyone, regardless of personal fitness level, outdoors and at any time of the year, depending on the individual’s fitness level.
Take Nordic Walking on holiday!
So why not consider a holiday in Tuscany to get started with this sport, which you can then continue to practice throughout the year in your city?
In fact, instructors, companies, and sports clubs that organize courses and activities for all levels of practice are now widespread throughout the country, and it will be easy to find the best solution for you and your family.
The parks of Tuscany, with their vast pine forests or magnificent hill landscapes rich in well-equipped trails and paths, are perfect for Nordic walking, and it’s becoming increasingly easy to find organized groups who come here to practice from Italy and abroad.
So if you already practice Nordic walking and belong to a sports club or association, invite your instructors or leaders to organize a holiday in Tuscany to practice your activities, you’ll definitely make a great impression!
