Abstract:

Based on a number of scientific researches, we can quite confidently say, that regular physical activity is getting more and more important during aging. This also applies to people with disabilities.

Nordic Walking was developed from Cross-Country Skiers’ off-season training activity. It can be seen as enhanced walking where the object of the activity is to involve muscles in the upper body to add greater intensity to the level of exercise; all while reducing the impact on the legs compared with running.
