Nordic Walking Clinics Coming To The YMCA In Cadillac, Michigan - Hosted by WWW.SKIWALKING.COM and the American Nordic Walking System

Perfect length Nordic Ski Walking 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.

(PRWEB) March 15, 2010 -- Free Nordic Ski Walking clinics are coming to AAR Mobility Systems 3rd Annual Wellness Fair on Saturday, May 15, 2010. The Wellness Fair will be held at Cadillac, Michigan’s new YMCA Community Center from 10am – 2pm. The Wellness Fair is open to other area companies as well as the local community.

The Wellness Fair will feature health and fitness professionals, service providers and local/regional businesses offering testing, screening and suggestions for leading healthier lifestyles. SKIWALKING.COM and The American Nordic Walking System will be hosting free Nordic Walking clinics and providing free Swix and Exel demo poles to test-drive. The demo poles will be real one-piece Nordic Walking poles sized correctly for each inidividual's height and equipped with comfortable patented Nordic Walking straps (patented by the Salomon Ski Company). All of the demo poles will come with removable rubber Nordic Walking tips/paws for use on pavement and other hard surfaces. When the rubber tips/paws are removed the durable carbide metal tips are exposed and ideal for trails, the beach, snow and ice.

The free Nordic Walking Clinics will include an introduction to the three basic levels of Nordic Walking based on the American Nordic Walking System developed by Pete Edwards, the owner/founder/head coach of SKIWALKING.COM headquartered in Glen Arbor, Michigan. The three levels provide options in intensity and exertion appropriate for almost any age and any fitness level.

Edwards offers 14 different lengths of quality Nordic Walking Poles – more than any other supplier/retailer in North America. Edwards’ one-piece poles prove to be safer, lighter and more durable than cheap/flimsy 2-piece and 3-piece twist-lock or flip-lock adjustable length/telescoping/collapsible poles from China. Quality one-piece Swix and Exel Nordic Walking poles don’t rattle, vibrate and potentially collapsible like 2-piece and 3-piece poles do. Skiers don't use collapsible poles.

Edwards also provides special Nordic Walking instruction for individuals with balance, stability and gait issues. Edwards has helped thousands of individuals with balance issues find increased freedom through the correct use of his sturdy one-piece poles in the perfect length for each individual’s height. Edwards is committed to the fact that seniors and individuals with balance issues should use one-piece poles and avoid cheap/flimsy 2-piece and 3-piece poles.

Nordic Walking’s winning combination of improved posture, a unique 4-Wheel Drive-type action and shock absorbing benefits - help many individuals to walk comfortably again. Nordic Walking Poles are helping individuals with balance issues, knee issues or new knees, hip issues or new hips, back issues (including those with rods in their back), weight issues, multiple sclerosis (MS), parkinson's (PD), neuropathy, arthritis, bursitis, scoliosis, lumbar stenosis, fibromyalgia, post polio, osteoporosis, stroke recovery, cancer recovery and other limitations to walking. Nordic Walking poles are helping thousands of Americans get off the couch, successfully get outside, start walking safely and effectively launch much needed walking campaigns.

Edwards has been coaching runners and skiers of all ages and fitness levels for over 25 years. Edwards has coached State Champions (individuals + teams), All-Americans and National Champions. He has also introduced Nordic Walking to thousands of Americans through Nordic Walking clinics, radio interviews, newspaper interviews and TV interviews. He has skied in 50K marathons and won 26.2 mile running marathons. His skiers have been hill bounding and ski walking with poles for years in the summer when deprived of snow. Hosting Nordic Walking clinics is extremely rewarding for Edwards and he especially enjoys hosting Nordic Walking clinics for MS, Parkinson’s and Diabetes support groups, plus Wounded Warrior Programs. Edwards has also donated hundreds of pairs of Nordic Walking Poles to Wounded Warrior Programs.
