Back to Fit with Urban Poling!
September 2, 2014 | By Nadia
For many kids and parents, “Back to School” means back to routine and back to work after a summer of fun-filled free time. Our “Back to Fit” program is designed to mean back to routine and back to work, too – we’re helping you get back in gear for a fit and healthy year! Keep checking our Facebook page on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in September as we will be posting tips on how to get “Back to Fit” while the kids get back to school. It’s all about ways to establish a fitness routine, and our tips will help you do just that while starting small and working up. And don’t worry if you don’t have kids returning to school, because this program is for anyone looking to get back into a fitness routine!
In case you needed any motivation to join us in getting “Back to Fit,” this article from the Mayo Clinic reminds us why we should be sure to make time to get on our feet and stay active! “Back to routine” can also mean settling back into a routine at work after the summer, so here’s a good reminder to not stay sitting for too long.
And here’s one more way we’re helping you get Back to Fit: get your Back to Fit Starter package from our online store, which includes your choice of Series 300, 4 Life, Adventure, or ACTIVATOR poles & a pole carry bag. Then, enter the promo code “Back to Fit” in the order comment field for a free pair of replacement tips, a $17.99 value!
We hope you’ll join us in getting “Back to Fit!”
Use the standard rhythm and technique, but swing both arms forward at the same time planting the boot tips slightly behind the handles. Then, keeping your arms straight, press down on the base of the handles, walk between your poles and feel your arms extend past your thighs and behind your body.
