Nordic Walking

Have a healthy holiday – the Alpine form of therapy

Ski champion Hermann Maier and many other international star athletes are not the only ones in the know: training in the mountains works wonders. This is because the most effective training, movement, and active exercise takes place at intermediate altitudes of between 700 and 2500 m above sea level.

Active exercise in the fresh mountain air has very stimulating effects; at high altitudes, even lower levels of activity are effective and especially rejuvenating – factors that have beneficial effects not only on the body but on the senses and the spirit.

These effects were investigated in a study of higher altitudes conducted by the University of Innsbruck (AMAS 2000). A trip to the mountains is healthy, especially if you takes maximum advantage of it. Moderate exercise such as hiking or even Nordic Alpine Walking is the key to success.
