NORDIC WALKING at Mooney’s Bay

Low-impact, high-energy ultimate workout that burns 20-40% more calories than regular walking. Excellent for cardio, posture and upper body strength through the use of Nordic poles, many major muscles are used including arms, back, shoulders, abdominals, legs, heart, lungs and the mind. The Terry Fox Athletic Facility is a world-class running track offering an Olympic-rated Mondo surface which provides additional cushioning for low-impact activity. Mooney’s Bay Park is also home to Wooded trails, Hogs Back Falls and scenic paths so you can enjoy
nature while taking part in this complete body workout. Experienced leaders will show you how to engage your CORE. All fitness levels welcome!
