Nordic Walking Poles are not created equal. There is a lot of marketing hype out there, but when it comes to logic and physics there are a lot of reasons why one-piece Nordic Walking Poles from WWW.SKIWALKING.COM and the American Nordic Walking System are consistently running 100% positive in all of the satisfaction ratings. Cheap/flimsy 2-piece and 3-piece twist-lock and flip-lock poles can never acheive such high ratings.
One-piece poles that are sized correctly are hassle-free. Collapsible poles tend to rattle, vibrate and/or collapse unexpectedly. Collapsible poles have twist-locks or twist-locks and these often prove to break or they refuse to hold their settings. While one-piece poles are lighter, safer and much more durable. At WWW.SKIWALKING.COM LLC and the American Nordic Walking System there are 16 different lengths SWIX and EXEL Nordic Walking Poles to select from - ensuring a perfect fit.
Perfect length poles help us to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is bio-mechanically a good thing. This improved walking posture when combined with the unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action of walking with poles radically reduces the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is low impact and yet provides a highly effective workout - burning more calories and working more muscle groups than regular walking.
Today I received another thank you card from a happy customer. She had taken one of my Nordic Walking Classes at Northwestern Michigan College and shared this with me: "I went walking with a group of 10 ladies yesterday and I used my new Nordic Walking Poles. We walked for an hour and without the poles I would not have made it. You and they are a blessing. Thank you. Happy Thanksgiving"
Everyday we receive thank you emails and cards in the mail.
Many of our new customers found us after their 1st pair of poles (collapsible poles from other sources costing anywhere from $20.00 - $200.00 per pair) failed miserably. Typically one of the twist-locks or flip-locks just refuses to lock into position. Seniors and those with balance issues should especially avoid cheap/flimsy collapsible poles and opt for durable/dependable one-piece poles that are sized correctly.
Skiers know that one-piece poles are the best for skiing. And when it comes to walking why compromise with your poles? One-piece poles will always prove to be superior.
