NORDIC WALKING POLES IMPROVE BALANCE, STABILITY AND GAIT
Now that the snow is gone it's time for my second favorite outdoor activity, walking with my Nordic Ski Walking
Poles. Now, don't be fooled by the cheap knock-offs at the big box stores. Get the real deal poles from www.skiwalking.com (a Michigan Company). Email me if you want a free shipping code. -- Editor
Here's the skinny on the poles. Over ten million Europeans are Nordic Walking with
special Nordic Ski Walking Poles. Not only does Nordic Walking burn up to 40% more calories than regular walking,
it automatically improves walking posture and helps to reduce the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back.
Utilizing the correct length poles encourages improved walking posture, while the poles and your arms absorb an
impressive amount of the shock that would typically hit the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is ideal
for athletes, kids, adults of all ages and even folks with balance issues.
Poles from SkiWalking.com come with an instructional DVD and full product support.
Get the real thing.
FEATURED RECIPES FROM ANNIE'S KITCHEN
During the summer you want to spend time golfing, biking, running, walking and just
hanging out. Here's a great recipe for the grill -- Wham-Bam Ham Marinade. This is a great way to
prepare thick slices of ham for grilling. Bake some potatoes on the grill and toast up some bread and it's an easy
meal. It involves grape jelly, so it has to be good, right? See this and more on our
Skier's Kitchen page.
