When Lindy Smith first moved to North Fort Myers in 2009, she was branded as that lady walking in the park with ski poles.
"People would tell me, 'What are you doing? Where's the snow?' " Smith said. It inspired her to open a home-based business, Walk With Lindy, to tell others about about Nordic pole walking.It's a full-body exercise that's a cardio workout, but improves posture, balance and relieves pressure, she said.
