Pole dancing is an incredible way to get in shape, exercise and be active. It can help:

  • Tone your triceps (back of upper arm)
  • Develop stronger shoulders
  • Burn more calories
  • Strengthening your core (mid trunk)
  • Improve posture & balance

But if you are not interested in hanging from a pole in any way whatsoever but still want to reap those benefits then try a different pole to exercise with.

Try Urban Poling aka Nordic walking. Nordic walking has been around since the late 1980’s and is a total body experience.

Urban Poling combines an upper body technique similar to cross country skiing with the lower body technique of regular walking. It uses 90% of the body’s muscles.

It is perfect for those who are:

  • Interested in a convenient, lower-impact activity
  • Avid walkers looking for something different and a full-body workout
  • Walkers who don’t enjoy or don’t have time for traditional upper body resistance training
  • Interested in weight loss
  • Trying to be active but also need to protect against lower body injuries.

I started Urban Poling Poles because running was getting hard on my joints and regular walking wasn’t enough for. Nordic walking has improved my posture, reduces stress and helped with weight loss and cardio.

So I have decided that starting in May 13th I will be hosting Urban Poling Walking Clinic. Sessions will be weekly for 5 weeks. There are two different locations to choose from.

These clinics will take place in a designated area and are designed to teach you the skills of Urban Poling. We will not be going for ‘walks’ but rather practicing techniques for:

  • Improved walking speed
  • Developing core strength & upper body strength
  • Exercises with the poles
  • Avoiding injury
  • Improving balance & posture

We will also review proper footwear, heart rate and exertion monitoring plus a couple of other things.

Space is limited. Call 519 258 4795 and JOIN TODAY. You can also join via Facebook.
