I loved the 'breath of fresh air' in the great outdoors! I didn't realise I could get so much fun and exercise out of a set of poles!
Cross Country Skiing
So you walk, run, cycle or workout regularly but feel the effect of the winter blues? Try cross country skiing to maintain and build that fitness level during the winter months. Learn or develop an excellent method of winter ‘cross-training’ by trying both skating and classic ski styles. One of the most aerobic of sports and yet low impact on the joints, this form of exercise is a great way to improve your fitness - at all levels.
