Nov. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Free Nordic Walking Classes will be a part of the SHAPE MICHIGAN event coming to Traverse City's Great Wolf Lodge on Wednesday, November 14th from 5pm - 9pm.

In addition to the free Nordic Walking classes you can watch the HBO Weight of the Nation documentary, attend an information-packed sponsor expo and learn from industry experts in panel discussions at this kick-off ShapeMichigan™ event. Help us create real-world solutions for Michigan's obesity epidemic.

Walking with Nordic Walking Poles can help to burn more calories than regular walking (up to 40% more calories) and at the same time the poles help to radically reduce the stress to the weight bearing joints (knees, hips and back) and improve balance.

Nordic Walking’s winning combination of improved posture, a unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action and shock absorbing benefits - helping 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), diabetes, 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.

The Nordic Walking classes will be hosted by Pete Edwards the owner/founder of WWW.SKIWALKING.COM and the American Nordic Walking System. Edwards has been coaching runners and skiers for over 30 years and is North America's leading promoter of user-friendly one-piece Nordic Walking Poles. One-piece poles that are sized correctly are safer, lighter, stronger, more durable and much-more user friendly than cheap/flimsy 2-piece and 3-piece collapsible poles. Seniors and those with balance issues should never use collapsible poles. Edwards offers 16 different lengths of user-friendly one-piece poles to ensure a Perfect Length Guarantee. The free classes at this event will include the free use of quality one-piece poles made by SWIX of Norway (WWW.SWIXNORDICWALKING.US) and EXEL of Finland (WWW.EXELNORDICWALKING.COM).

According to Nick Mahood, SWIX USA Nordic Walking Director, "Pete Edwards, The American Nordic Walking System and SKIWALKING.COM's owner/founder/coach, has single handedly introduced thousands of Americans to Nordic Walking through his enthusiastic Nordic Walking clinics! I have no doubt that Edwards is the #1 retailer of Nordic Walking Poles in the USA! You can quote me on that!"
