In every Nordic walking class we make sure we warm up properly and carry out cooldown stretches. The poles actually help with some of these exercises and can be used for balance and also to achieve a deeper stretch in some cases.⠀ #nordicwalking #perthoutdoors #trailwalker #bushwalking #perthfitfam #NordicwalkingWA #trailswa #perthsocial #perthfit #outdoors #skifit #trails #perthisok#healthy #active4life #fitness #nordicwalkingwa #nordicwalkingperth #nordic #perthfitness #rehab #seniorfitness #perthfitfam #perthtodo #activeinperth #crosstraining #westernaustralia #perthhikes #trailwalker #justanotherdayinwa ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
There are two main rules that apply to weight loss that make Nordic Walking a particularly effective way to tackle it. ⠀ ⠀ 1. The more active you are, the more calories you will burn so as long as you are careful not to put in more than you burn (by watching what you eat) you will gradually start to lose weight. By using the poles you use more muscles which significantly increases the amount of calories burned without making you feel you are pushing yourself too hard. ⠀ ⠀ 2. As you get older, the amount of lean tissue (muscles) you have in the body decreases unless you remain particularly active – it is these muscles that are efficient at burning calories so it important to keep them working at a level that will ensure they do not continue to decrease. ⠀ ⠀ Nordic Walking uses most of the major muscles in the body and therefore helps to keep them in good condition. This gives you the added benefit of improved posture and a more toned physique too! ⠀ #nordicwalking #perthoutdoors #trailwalker #bushwalking #perthfitfam #NordicwalkingWA #trailswa #perthsocial #perthfit #outdoors #skifit #trails #perthisok#healthy #active4life #fitness #nordicwalkingwa #nordicwalkingperth #nordic #perthfitness #rehab #seniorfitness #perthfitfam #perthtodo #activeinperth #crosstraining #westernaustralia #perthhikes #trailwalker #justanotherdayinwa ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Nordic Walking is great for your mental health!⠀ There have been a number of recent studies that prove that outdoor or 'green' exercise has a pronounced effect on your mood and health. ⠀ The three major benefits found were: ⠀ 1. Being outdoors generally leads to increasing activity levels ⠀ 2. The connection with nature is proven to have a positive effect on mood and to reduce stress levels. 3. Taking part in outdoor activites increases the opportunity for social interaction - those with increased levels of of social interaction tend to be in better health than those who have very little.⠀ #nordicwalking #perthoutdoors #trailwalker #bushwalking #perthfitfam #NordicwalkingWA #trailswa #perthsocial #perthfit #outdoors #skifit #trails #perthisok#healthy #active4life #fitness #nordicwalkingwa #nordicwalkingperth #nordic #perthfitness #rehab #seniorfitness #perthfitfam #perthtodo #activeinperth #crosstraining #westernaustralia #perthhikes #trailwalker #justanotherdayinwa

Nordic Walking reduces the pressure on knees and joints, is great for the heart and lungs and is ideal for neck, shoulder and back problems thanks to the support given by the poles when used effectively.⠀ ⠀ If you learn the technique properly you will gain these benefits very quickly!#nordicwalking #perthoutdoors #trailwalker #bushwalking #NordicwalkingWA #trailswa #perthsocial #OutThere #perthfit #outdoors #skifit #trails #perthisok #visitwa#healthy #active4life #fitness #nordicwalkingperth #nordic #perthfitness #rehab #seniorfitness #perthfitfam #perthtodo #activeinperth #crosstraining #westernaustralia #perthhikes #trailwalker #justanotherdayinwa ⠀ ⠀

#SnakeBite That bite of summer has well and truly come early this year and with that heat, comes snakes 🐍 3000 bites are reported annually. 300-500 hospitalisations 2-3 deaths annually 🔸️Average time to death is 12 hours. The urban myth that you are bitten in the yard and die before you can walk from your chook pen back to the house is a load of rubbish 🔸️While not new, the management of snake bite (like a flood/fire evacuation plan or CPR) should be refreshed each season. Let’s start with a Basic overview. 🔸️There are five genus of snakes that will harm us (seriously) Browns, Blacks, Adders, Tigers and Taipans. 🔸️All snake venom is made up of huge proteins (like egg white). When bitten, a snake injects some venom into the meat of your limb (NOT into your blood). 🔸️This venom can not be absorbed into the blood stream from the bite site. It travels in a fluid transport system in your body called the lymphatic system (not the blood stream). Now this fluid (lymph) is moved differently to blood. Your heart pumps blood around, so even when you are lying dead still, your blood still circulates around the body. Lymph fluid is different. It moves around with physical muscle movement like bending your arm, bending knees, wriggling fingers and toes, walking/exercise etc. 🔸️Now here is the thing. Lymph fluid becomes blood after these lymph vessels converge to form one of two large vessels (lymphatic trunks)which are connected to veins at the base of the neck. 🔸️Back to the snake bite site. When bitten, the venom has been injected into this lymph fluid (which makes up the bulk of the water in your tissues). 🔸️The only way that the venom can get into your blood stream is to be moved from the bite site in the lymphatic vessels. The only way to do this is to physically move the limbs that were bitten. Stay still!!! Venom can’t move if the victim doesn’t move. Stay still!! 👈👈👈 Remember people are not bitten into their blood stream.
