Nordic Pole Walking (NPW) is an excellent low-impact exercise that offers the highest benefits for health, wellness and fitness for seniors. Nordic Walking Poles enable you to incorporate over 90% of all your body muscles.
CARP NS has teamed up with industry-leader Nordixx Pole Walking Nova Scotia to offer top-quality Nordixx Nordic Walking Poles as well as free beginner instruction in Nordic Walking.
Not only do Nordixx Nordic Walking Poles benefit your health, but when you purchase a pair, they will benefit CARP NS, which will receive 15% from each sale. Funds are used by CARP NS to hold events for our members and the general public on a wide range of topics including health advocacy, financial security, the environment and living well.
