Nordic Walking: A Simple Lifetime Physical Activity for Every Student
Santos, Luis; Fernandez-Rio, Javier
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, v84 n3 p26-29 2013
Children who become competent in a wide variety of motor skills and movement patterns are more likely to remain physically active for life. Physical education can achieve this goal by providing an extensive selection of activities and by including learning units that encourage students to increase their skill level and stay active year-round. Nordic walking has been proven to be a safe, healthy activity for persons of all ages. Therefore, it has the potential to become an excellent lifetime physical activity. This article provides physical education teachers with an introduction to Nordic walking and its multiple possibilities. (Contains 5 figures and 1 table.)
