A Pole Up- Article by LEAP Magazine
We are proud to announce the release of LEAP Magazine’s article “A Pole Up” that focuses on the benefits of Nordic Walking not just for healthy individuals but for cancer patients as well. It features our Urban Poling ambassador Mandy Johnson and highlights research done on the positive effects poling can have for cancer patients and people of all ages and activity levels.
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!
