Nordic Walking / Urban Poling Benefits

Nordic Walking (Urban Poling) is the latest craze in the exercise arena. And for good reason, with Nordic Walking you can burn 20 – 46% more calories than walking alone. Here are some of the benefits of Nordic Walking or Urban Poling:

  • involves 80% of your muscles, especially your core muscles
  • is low impact and reduces stress off the knees, hips and ankles
  • improves posture & stability, strengthens abdominal & back muscles
  • enhances energy & mood while reducing stress
  • fun & easy to do and is adaptable to all fitness levels

Add energy to your walk and keep your body toned for a healthier life! Natural Trekking plans to put hundreds of ‘people in Motion’ with Nordic Walking sessions using Urban Poles™ Urban Poling.

 

“Nordic-Walk Your Way to Weight Loss”!

Click here for a  published article in Canadian Living Magazine. It’s an inspiring first-person story from an Urban Poling class participant and former marathon runner who has fallen in love with poling.  “After four months of walking three or four times a week in all kinds of weather, I’ve lost 10 pounds, my arms are more toned, and I feel re-energized,” says the author Cheryl Embrett.

Success in 2011 & 2013 – Natural Trekking arrives at Everest Base Camp using Urban Poles™

group at Everest Base Camp with Natural TrekkingShortly before noon on Sunday April 24, 2011, Lois Tomlinson of Natural Trekking and 3 of her clients arrive at Everest Base Camp with the help of Urban Poles™. The recent snow on the rocky trail made the use of poles mandatory! It was an incredible moment to stand at the base of Everest watching mountaineers prepare to ascend the highest mountain in the world!  In May 2013, Lois arrived once again at Everest Base Camp with her trusty Urban ‘Adventure’ Poles in hand!
