Nordic Pole Walking Training in Niagara
We meet on Thursday evenings, 7 pm at the Welland Canal Viewing Centre (Lock 3) on the Welland Canals Parkway in St. Catharines. There is still lots of time to join in the training, and become part of Team Eleanor Mills Niagara.
For $99 you get your own set of Nordixx poles and can attend the weekly training sessions. Anyone who wishes to join the walk in Niagara-on-the-Lake on October 12, needs to find sponsorship of at least $199. There are many interesting incentive prizes for funds raised beyond that amount.
Nordic pole walking is an excellent exercise for the entire body as it stresses arms as well as legs. The poles give support and help with balance, as well as adding a pleasant rhythm to walking.
