Fight Diabetes with Urban Poling!
April 15, 2014 | By Nadia
We are excited to introduce a new program we designed with Dr. Agnes Coutinho, PhD that is geared specifically toward those living with Type 2 Diabetes, pre-diabetes, or those at high risk for diabetes. “Fight Diabetes with Urban Poling” is available as an online course (click here for further information and to purchase), and it includes instructions and tips on the basic Urban Poling technique in addition to warm-up, work-out, and cool-down Urban Poling exercises. Urban Poling is a truly beneficial form of exercise for those living with or at risk for Type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes and we are excited to be able to share it with our community with this new course!
Poles assist in maintaining proper posture but at times you may find yourself leaning forward. Remember to keep your spine erect, tummy tucked in, eyes forward, chin tucked and shoulders relaxed. And just one more thing to remember, have fun with it!
