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!
- 1 pair of Spirit Poles
- Piezo Pedometer
- Urban Poling Journal
- WalkUP for Diabetes online course
Use the standard rhythm and technique, but swing both arms forward at the same time planting the boot tips slightly behind the handles. Then, keeping your arms straight, press down on the base of the handles, walk between your poles and feel your arms extend past your thighs and behind your body.
