Active Living for Active Communities

Summarized by Dr. Agnes Coutinho PhD
 It is more important now than ever before, to ensure we are all finding ways for residents to stay active and healthy.
Walking, while maintaining adequate social distancing, is one of the few activities which is still being recommended globally and has already been determined to be one of the most life-altering forms of exercise.
The UP Active Living  Signature Program is evidence based to improve all researched benefits of taking a walk, both for our mind and body, but brings these benefits UP a notch!  Our evidence-based Activator ℗ walking poles were developed for older adults by an OT and gerontologist  to facilitate walking indoors and  on outdoor walking pathways.   Watch our video for examples of innovative seated and standing exercises!

I never thought I would start a craze in our town through our older adult programming, but that is exactly what has happened with our Urban Poling Program.

– Cheryl Philips, Older Adult Program Co-ordinator

Activator walking poles are phenomenal in older adult fitness classes. The four points of contact help improve posture balance, and security. But most important of all in the way that participants’ self-esteem goes off the chart.

– Don Ferguson, older adult fitness instructor

I enjoy walking now because my fears of injury are gone. I feel confident, stand taller and get a better workout. I love the ergonomic handles because my hands don’t get sore like they did from gripping my other poles.
