Gymstick Nordic Walking


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.

Nordic Walking is an effective way of walking with help of poles. The movements of the arms, legs and body during walking with poles are equivalent to the rhythm of movements while walking firmly without poles.


Gymstick is a functional resistance training tool, developed originally in Finland in 2003. The idea was to  combine two fitness tools together: the exercise stick and exercise band and the result was the Gyimstick fitness tool.

The Gymstick uses three-dimensional movements that create resistance in your upper body, core, and lower body in one fluid movement.
