Nordic Walking in the Austrian alps
The Nordic Walking paradise in Vorarlberg
Before Nordic Walking became a popular sport, it was mainly used as a training method for cross-country skiers in summer and autumn. In order to prepare for the winter and improve their stamina and techniques, the cross-country skiers trained outdoors with Nordic Walking, which was then – in the 30s – called stick-walking or stick-running.
In 1993 walking with supporting sticks was called Nordic Walking and became increasingly popular. After a short time, it became the new big trend and suitable for mass sport. Therefore, all you need are the right shoes, an outfit and the required sticks. Because of the additional use of the hands, the whole torso is exercised and general stamina and condition is improved.
