Nordic Sports

20 Januari 2012

2012's winter discovery most be Nordic Sports. Espace Diamant, a wonderful French Alp ski resort (1300 - 2200 m), was the ultimate location.

Another sport on my list. The specifics of Nordic Sports are the sticks, which help you train your entire body (almost 90% of your muscles). It makes Nordic Sport probably the safest sport on earth, with a high training level.

The best asset is though the fact you can train outside, on the most fantastic places. Espace Diamant was like a fairytale that told me about Nordic Sports.

On NordicSports.nl you'll find an overview of well-known, or to be discovered Nordic Sports, like Nordic Walking & Hiking, Cross Skating, Biatlon, Swedish Skating, Snow Shoeing,...
 
I trained on Nordic Skiing: Cross Country Skiing (or Langlaufen, but that sounds terrible) is having a rebirth, probably thanks to the hype of Nordic Walking, but it's as well the mother of all Nordic Sports, the perfect mix of endurance and power training, coordination an enjoying nature and snow. As far now, I stuck to the classic method, with parallel skis in the loipe (the track to follow), but once I get my balance right I'll switch to the Skating technique.


Brands like Salomon (originally French, with the Salomon Nordic collection) and Peak Performance (born in åre, Sweden, another to discover Nordic Ski resort) noticed the rebirth and launched new Nordic Ski collections (shoes, skis, accessories).


Next year, you'll find me in Sweden or Norway on a winter holiday!
