About Urban Poling

Urban Poling is an evidence based form of Nordic Walking using specially designed poles and walking technique. This results in a low impact workout that activates the core and postural muscles, increases fitness, and utilizes 90 % of both upper and lower body muscles.

 

It is great for those who want to incorporate more exercise into their lives, improve their posture, strength and balance, recover from surgery, or just want to have fun. It is social, versatile and affordable and is done in the Australian great outdoors. What more could you want!

 

Unique to Urban Poling is that it is used not only as a fitness activity, but also in many different rehabilitation settings by Allied Health professionals. This is because of its specially designed Activator poles, which are more stable than other Nordic poles and use an slightly different, easier walking technique. Areas in which therapists are currently using Urban and Activator poles include hip and knee replacements, spinal injuries and surgery, older adults, cancer care, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke rehabilitation.

You don’t have to be extreme, just consistent.
