"People in Europe, when they go walking, they walk with poles," says Eric Okamura, owner of Fit For Life, an exercise and massage studio in Iwilei, Hawaii."It is very rare that you see them without them."

And yes, he's heard all the comments, too.
"There is a little dork factor associated with Nordic poles because they are so uncommon, but there are too many health benefits to ignore," he says."So you let it roll off your back."

Okamura leads a group of up to 20 Nordic walkers every Thursday afternoon, walking around local parks.
"The bulk of my group are seniors," Okamura says.
