Have you gotten all your steps in today? It’s a common question these days because we all know how important it is to get your steps in and your body moving. After all, the CDC recommends that we all get at least 5,000 steps per day! Well here is your chance to do it and have a whole lot of fun doing it! Join Nadine for this 5,000+ Step Workout with poles that will get you moving and energized to keep you fit and healthy. By taking the movement of indoor nordic walking and adding a few more fun steps into the mix, you can get the steps you need along with the energy coaching! During this 5,000+ Step workout you’ll be walking at approximately 5km per hour pace and working for about 60 minutes. Amazing! Keep in mind this is only an estimate so if your monitor or watch tracks a few more or less, that’s okay too! The point is to move your body! Indoor nordic walking or stepping is the base move for this workout -but be ready because there is so much more. You’ll step side to side, kick front, back, side to side, glute squeezes, do knee lifts, arm circles and more. The more you move, the more you burn all while keeping everything LOW IMPACT! There is no harsh pounding on your joints. So let’s get moving and stepping together and have some fun along the way! Nordic walking (or pole stepping) is a full-body workout that is gaining in popularity every year. It is an ideal activity for people of all ages and fitness levels. It challenges almost every muscle while also training cardiovascular endurance, balance and coordination. Participants offload weight into Nordic walking poles, which has two effects: It takes stress off the hips and knees and back…. while also improving posture and shifting work to the core, arms and shoulders. We operate our online classes through zoom. You will need to access the classes through your web browser or the zoom application. If you do not have poles, no problem. We would be happy to recommend a great place to purchase some or you are welcome to use some light hand weights.
