Hello everyone,

If you check this site:
http://www.exerstrider.com/

it will tell you more than I can about walking
with Nordic Poles.

It is very popular in Europe.
They are poles similar to the ones you would
use for cross-country skiing.

A walker use them to help getting a better
workout. It is supposed to work out your muscles better than just walking.

It also helps if you have knee problems or
back pain.

But, like I said, I haven't used them yet.

Marie
