URBAN POLING F5

Instructor: Peggy Prendergast

Urban Poling provides balance and the aerobic and strength building benefits of both walking and an upper body work-out. By adding poles, you can turn a walk into a full body workout using 90% of the body's muscles. Popular in Scandinavia for years, this form of Nordic walking can be performed by people of all ages. There are particular health benefits for those with osteoarthritis in the knees. Urban Poling can be done almost anywhere – sidewalks, parks, hiking trails, and indoor tracks in both winter and summer. Peggy is a Certified Urban Poling Instructor who has avoided knee replacements because of Urban Poling.

Please Note:

Bring your own poles or poles will be available for use and/or purchase on site.
