At the American Nordic Walking System and WWW.SKIWALKING.COM we are dedicated to encouraging individuals of ALL ages and ALL fitness levels to initiate their own personal fitness programs. Walking, hiking and trekking with durable and user friendly one-piece poles provide a proven, low-impact, high calorie burn fitness activity. More Americans taking up Nordic Walking will result in the adoption of healthier lifestyles and increased use of and appreciation for our bike paths, hiking trails, parks and recreational areas.

Don't get scammed by cheap/flimsy 2-piece or 3-piece collapsible poles that rattle, vibrate and can collapse unexpectedly. One-piece poles will always prove safer, lighter and much more durable than the collapsible poles flooding the market from China. At WWW.SKIWALKING.COM and the American Nordic Walking System we offer 16 different lengths and ensure a perfect fit.

Perfect length poles help us to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is biomechanically 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.
