Boulder Poised to Discover Nordic Walking

I live in Boulder, Colorado, renowned as one of America’s fittest cities. It steadily leads various lists of the best cities for runners, cyclists, rock climbers, and so on. The city operates three enormous recreation centers, the University of Colorado has its own, and the phone book lists nearly two dozen private fitness centers, enterprises gyms and studios — not from A to Z, but from A (Alchemy of Movement) to W (The Workout Studio). Boulderites are active year-round, indoors and outdoors. Miles of paved recreation trails throughout the city and unpaved trails administered by the Boulder Mountain Parks & Open Space Department invite Nordic Walkers.
The Boulder Daily Camera’s recent article about ex-Olympian Annette Tennander Bank and her Nordic Walking training programs point to its impending growth spurt. She is a certified trainer and is a big-time Nordic Walking enthusiast with almost evangelistic fervor for spreading the word about the sport.
