Air walker or Nordic Walker
Air Walker or Nordic Walker is a low Impact fitness machine. The action is similar to that of Nordic Walking with poles, which is said to have superior fitness benefits than traditional walking.
The dual action of leg and arm movement at the same time encages more muscle groups and so burns more calories. Exercising on an Air Walker you use more of your entire body. You also receive fitness building stimulation not present in normal walking. The chest, latissimus dorsi (back) muscles, triceps, biceps, shoulder, abdominals, spinal and other core muscles are all encaged which result in significant increases in heart rate at a given pace. With the basic “hands above the heart” position necessitated by the arms of the Air Walker, circulation is improved and heart rate is reduced. The “rhythm” created by exercising with hands in this elevated position leads to relaxed, more regular breathing and increased stamina.
Exercising on an Air Walker has been estimated as producing up to a 35% increase in energy consumption, compared to traditional walking.
