  • Fort Myers-Cape Coral, FL (1888PressRelease) January 28, 2011 - There is a new alternative to traditional walking that is becoming a growing trend among residents of Southwest Florida. "Balance Walking", which has been popular in Europe for years, is now growing in popularity among Americans. For Southwest Florida walkers who are jumping (or walking) onto the "balance bandwagon", there is good news. Foot Solutions of Estero is facilitating a class that meets twice a week in Estero Park, for those who would like to begin incorporating this type of exercise into their fitness routine.

    "Balance walking is a fantastic exercise which uses Nordic Walking poles to simulate the motions of cross country skiing, minus the snow," said Chris Cole, owner of Foot Solutions in Estero. "We initiated these classes to provide people the opportunity to practice Balance Walking in a social setting. Participants will also have an instructor on hand to ensure that they are doing it correctly and receiving the maximum benefits."

    Balance walking increases calorie burning by 50% compared to walking, allowing people to cut their workout time in half. It also significantly reduces stress to knees, hips, and back, and strengthens core muscles, helping to tone abs, buttocks and the back.
    Balance Walking group classes meet at the Estero Park on Corkscrew Road every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:30am - 10am. The classes are $5 per class or $20 per month, and are appropriate for all ages and skill levels. For information about Balance Walking classes or Nordic Walking poles, contact Foot Solutions of Estero at (239) 495-8911.
