Owner/founder/coach - The American Nordic Walking System and WWW.SKIWALKING.COM
I have been coaching runners and skiers for over 25 years. During the past couple years I have hosted hundreds of Nordic Walking clinics and lessons.
The American Nordic Walking System is a successful teaching system that is safe and effective. Our quality Nordic Ski Walking Poles are made in Norway and Finland - NOT China! We are dedicated to the fact that one-piece poles are safer, lighter and much more durable than twist-locking adjustable/telescoping/collapsible poles.
According to Nick Mahood, SWIX Nordic Walking Director, "Pete Edwards, SkiWalking.com's owner/founder/coach, has single handedly introduced thousands of Americans to Nordic Walking. I have no doubt that Edwards is the #1 retailer of Nordic Walking Poles in the USA."
My family and I Ski Walk together every day - unless the snow is really good and we are out cross country skiing. And like all skiers, we ski with one-piece poles - custom fit to our height. This same logic makes total sense when it comes to walking poles too. We custom fit all our customers into the perfect length poles for their height.
Perfect length poles help us to automatically walk with a super straight back - better walking posture is biomechanically a good thing. This improved walking posture when combined with the unique 4-Wheel-Drive type action of walking with poles radically reduces the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Nordic Walking is low impact and yet provides a highly effective workout - burning more calories and working more muscle groups than regular walking.
Please let me know if you have any questions at any time.
Have a great day – Ski Walking is the best,
