Cross Country Skiing

Cross Country Skiing

Cross Country Skiing is a healthy sport and a tremendous cardiovascular activity.  It is enjoyed by people of all ages and activity levels.  It is a total body work-out, calorie burner, muscle strengthener, and knee pain reliever.  Cross country skiing combines an upper and lower body work-out by pushing and pulling with all the major muscle groups.

Cross country skiing is a safe and low impact form of exercise.  There is very little pounding on the feet, ankles, and knees.  The exercise consists of a steady gliding motion, without sudden motions or twisting movements.  For people suffering from osteoarthritis in their knees who can’t travel south for the winter it maybe just what the doctor ordered.  Get outside, get some exercise, and try something different.  Your knees will thank you.
