That phrase was coined by Dr. Fritjof Nansen 115 years ago. And, he probably knew what he was talking about. It was he, who traversed the whole of Greenland, on cross-country skis. Certainly – cross-country skiing is one of the healthiest sports, there is. Over 90% of the entire muscle apparatus can be exercised uniformly and protectively.
