  1. Alex, Ontario

    The poles were for my wife who is recovering from hip replacement surgery. She uses them for a daily walk and finds them helpful. She also used them in September in Budapest, Vienna and Prague as we were travelling in Europe. Again very helpful. I suspect that they will become a permanent part of her walking routine.

  2. Keith, Ontario

    I was steered in your direction by my Parkinson’s Disease physiotherapist and I am very pleased that she did. My gait has improved and I have reduce my time to complete my walks by some 30-50%, so now I am focusing on going greater distances. My therapist recently remarked that I am not shuffling in the normal way I have. I am pleased that I am getting this result after actively using the poles for about 30 days. Again thanks for such a great product.

  3. Gerd

    I love them and use them every day either for going for a walk with my partner or when I go shopping. They are great, better than my cane. They give me so much support in my back, arms and posture, I could not do without them. I recommend them to everyone.

  4. Jeff

    I bought your poles for my wife and she gives them an A+. She is active, so the improvement was in her balance and peace of mind-safety while hiking with an arthritic knee.

    The Activator poles are wonderful! One of my favourite things about the poles is the pin locking system. I work with a variety of participants who have chronic conditions, often the act of tightening something is difficult and requires assistance. The Activator poles allow participants to be self sufficient and set themselves up and just get moving. The Activator poles are sturdy and offer a great way to assist people to get up and get moving!

  6. Loretta

    I bought the poles for my Husband, who has knee problems and he is enjoying the stability he feels while walking. Hopefully, in time he will enjoy walking more. I have had mine for years, love them, and definitely it has strengthened my core.

  7. Katherine McKoy

    I have some mobility and balance issues so walking was a chore, even though I love to walk.

    I discovered Urban poles and over 1.5 years ago I bought a set of activator poles. I have never looked back.

    I walk every day! I am able to walk faster and with more confidence.

    I was on a weight loss journey and thanks to my poles giving me the confidence to walk, I lost 70 lbs.

    I’ve used the Activators as an instructor to help those with mobility difficulties get poling! They are great for beginners to gradually build from the Activator technique to the fitness technique as they grow stronger and their posture improves – all you have to do is change the booties!

  9. Cherie

    Great product…easy to use and helped me walk further/exercise more despite my leg difficulties.

  10. Crystal Wright

    I love recommending the ‘Activator’ poles to people who attend my fitness classes. Activator poles are sturdy, safe and provide an excellent way to ‘spruce up’ a walking workout. The locking mechanism is secure, yet easy for people to adjust. From the comfort grip handles to the durable bell-tips…

    this is truly a great fitness product!
