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.
Urban PolingCo-directors Mandy Shintani and Diana Oliver are women at different stages of life with very different professional backgrounds, yet they share a dream – to help others realize the many benefits Urban Poling has given to them.
Keep your poles more upright and in front of you. Lean forward slightly, and use the poles to help push you up the hill. If necessary, bend your elbows, but remember to transition back to the straight arm technique at the top of the hill
