Hi. I have been using my poles for almost a year now and I absolutely love them! I get a great upper body workout while I walk and I find it makes for a better cardiovascular workout as well. At first I was a little self concious about going out with my poles (half expecting someone to yell "Hey lady! You lost yer skis!") and would venture out only in the early morning when I was relatively sure I wouldn't encounter many people. By now I don't really care who I see. The poles are just a piece of exercise equipment just like a bicycle or treadmill or weights or skis. I feel more fit and stronger than before. I would recommend nordic walking to anyone. Just a tip, though, it's a good idea to have a good stretch after you're finished so you don't get stiff the next day, but that's true of any exercise. Get out there and walk! You won't be sorry. Good luck.

Jennifer
