Already A Fan and Ready To Get Your Poles?
"I can take a walk, exercise the whole body, and do it in half the time? Yes please!"

Urban Poling (a.k.a. Nordic walking) gives you a full body

workout in half the time, and has these added benefits: 


  • Do 'crunches' while walking: with proper technique, 5,000 steps per hour produces 5,000 ab contractions

  • Save time: 15 minutes of Nordic walking = 28 minutes of standard walking, and burns up to 46% more calories too!

  • Stop hurting: using the poles reduces impact on joints and decreases pain in knees, hips, and back

  • Stand tall: unlike regular walking, Urban Poling improves posture during and after your walk


...and while Nordic walking was originally created to be an off-season fitness 

activity for Nordic skiers, research has shown it has a positive impact those

on chronic diseases, orthopedic conditions, neurological issues such as

Parkinson's Disease, and rehabilitation, especially while using Urban Poling's

patented Activator poles and technique.

Nordic walking (aka Urban Poling) began almost 75 years ago as an off-season activity for cross country skiers in Norway. It quickly caught the attention of the general public and, over the years, Nordic walking grew in popularity throughout Europe and Canada. Today, there are an estimated 10 million Nordic walkers all over the world as people recognize not only the fun and ease of the activity, but the research-based health benefits as well.  Urban Poling leads the way in patented equipment and walking techniques designed for fitness and those with limited mobility.
