Urban Poling Inc. was recently featured on Today’s Parent’s blog. Here’s an excerpt from their fantastic story:
“Actually, I’ve been Nordic walking for some time and have really taken to it. While I did feel, and probably look, a little funny as I got the hang of it over my first few walks, once I did, there was no stopping me. In fact, I enjoy it so much that I have become a certified Nordic walking instructor and my company, Everfit, will begin offering Nordic Walkfit classes in the fall.”
Head over to their site to read the full article.
For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
