You may have noticed a group of us walking through town with poles. Well, we are having so much fun that I, a certified instructor of Urban Poling, am excited to expand this activity through our community.

What is Urban Poling (also known as Nordic Walking)?

Urban poling is one of the fastest growing forms of fitness and rehab in Canada. It involves walking with a set of poles specifically designed for this activity. Adding the poles to your walk engages your core muscles in a way that regular walking does not. It is like cross-country skiing without the skis.

Urban Poling is an energizing activity that can be enjoyed by people of any age and athletic ability. Come enjoy the same year-round fresh-air experience as running—but without added stress to your joints. If you do not yet own poles, no worries! You can rent the Urban Poles from me for $5 a session until you get hooked and buy your own!
