Nordic Walking

It's called nordic walking and now Willows Retirement Community in Rockford has many of it's seniors on the fast track to getting fit.

Using specially designed poles to propel, nordic walking combines ease with total body fitness and allows us to burn 50% more calories per hour than traditional walking.

The end result, less pressure and impact on joints while exercising, better cardiovascular endurance, and muscle strength.

The pole creator and founder of Exerstrider Products in Madison kicked off the program at Wesley Willows in the spring of 2006.
