Nordic Walking Benefits

Get into shape by burning up to 46% more calories than regular walking without increased exertion. Nordic Walking takes fitness walking to a new level by adding poles to produce an incredible upper body workout. This workout increases your endurance, strengthens your core, arms, chest, back, buttocks and legs, improves your posture and flexibility and it takes stress off your ankle, knee, and hip joints.

Nordic Walking Classes in Playa Vista, CA

Malin Svensson is the Nordic Walking Guru in North America, and she teaches Nordic Walking classes in Playa Vista only a few times a year. This is a rare opportunity to learn from her in person. Make sure to sign up as soon as possible – she only accepts max 20 participants per class.

 

What does a Nordic Walking class look like?

Bring your own Nordic Walking poles or come earlier to get fitted into poles provided for the class. Be courteous to all participants and arrive 15 minutes earlier (4:45pm) so we can start on time at 5pm. Each class is 1 hour long and starts with some walking and Basic Nordic Walking techniques. We apply the techniques as we go for a Nordic Walking Workout around Playa Vista. Everyone will walk at their own pace, but we still stay together as a group. Malin will organize this. She will also give each participant some individual attention to improve their techniques. As we return to the meeting place, we end the session with some static stretches.

(If you are not sure you can participate in the group class, Malin offers private sessions as well for $250/hr. Click Here to Sign Up for a Private Session with Malin)

Jody Gittleman Testimonials for Nordic Body and Malin Svensson

Increase your speed, burn more calories and avoid injuries

"From afar, Nordic Walking looks pretty intuitive, but you’d be surprised at how refining your technique really helps you realize the most benefit out of it. Malin talks you through all the finer points of finessing your technique to increase your speed, burn more calories and avoid injury."

Barbara Powers Testimonials for Nordic Body and Malin Svensson

Stomach fat decreased, posture improved, and core strength increased

"Malin’s personalized instruction and attention to my walking form has been invaluable and something I could not have achieved on my own. I notice my stomach fat disappearing and my posture improving as I feel my core muscles strengthening, all after my first week of Nordic walking."

Barbara Powers, Writer

 
Barbara Powers Testimonials for Nordic Body and Malin Svensson

Newly weds fall in love with Nordic Walking

"Malin, thanks for the Introduction to Nordic Walking. Not only was it informative, but it really did get me excited about doing Nordic Walking. I was 50/50 before – now I’m just about 100%. Very surprising how different and how much better I felt doing this than just regular walking! I walk about 2 miles or more every night, but after today’s class, even for the short distance, my whole body is sore, mainly my arms and shoulders – which is a good thing. It just proves that this is a true total body workout, without the need for hundreds of dollars worth of equipment. Nordic Walking might be tough to get into at first, in terms of style and image, but once you try Nordic Walking and feel the benefits one quickly gets over that because Nordic Walking is probably the best workout possible. As far as the technique, what really helped most was timing. Walking in rhythm might seem natural, but…well, I was surprised how Nordic Walking helped my body feel more in sync.”

Laleh Amaya Testimonials for Nordic Body and Malin Svensson

Nordic Walking strengthens your muscles without joint pain

"We (my sister, my brother in-law and me) have been taking the Nordic Walking class by Malin for the past couple of months and I feel that my body is changing and getting stronger all the time. I have done more than half a dozen half-marathons and the last one only 8 months ago, but this exercise has really strengthened my muscles – without joint pain! Malin is an inspirational instructor who is very passionate about her work and it shows every day. She is determined to make sure each and everyone has a perfect posture and technique to get the best benefits from the exercise. We hope to continue with our training with Malin and Nordic Body for a very long time.”

Nordic Walking weight loss benefit: Down a dress size

"I have fallen in love with this sport (Nordic Walking), think Malin’s the best, and have achieved so many benefits including the loss of a dress size! I never anticipated the tone and muscle I’ve built in my arms and shoulders as well as so many other benefits. Since taking lessons from Malin over 9 months ago, I’ve Nordic Walked almost every day! At my age I’m thrilled to have found a safe, energizing, fun and attention getting exercise.”
