WalkUP for DiabetesAdd to Cart Price: $N/A
Urban Poling is one of the most effective forms of fitness for managing diabetes and weight loss. That’s why we’ve put together a special package just for diabetics – complete with poles, pedometer, journal and fitness guidance.
The package includes enrolment in our WalkUP with Diabetes Self-Management Course (online) to get you started with the proper Urban Poling technique. It includes exercises and stretches you can do with your poles, ideas for creating and tracking a routine, and suggestions for choosing proper footwear and clothing, and lots more. Dr. Agnes Coutinho, PhD highly recommends Urban Poling and has helped us design this course!

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
