Urban Poling in the News: Susan Yackulic
June 6, 2014 | By Nadia
We wanted to share with you a video from CTV News Edmonton featuring one of our very own trainers, Susan Yackulic of Get Fit Personal Training! Susan is a new instructor, and here she is with her group on their first lesson together. The video is titled “Walkers in Cloverdale stepping out of comfort zone” – they’re trying something new, challenging themselves, and adopting a new way of staying active and experiencing their surroundings in Cloverdale! Even though they’re first-timers, we think Susan’s group looks amazing already. They look like naturals!
Susan also highlights how Urban Poling provides added stability and is beneficial for those looking for an activity that won’t put too much pressure on their joints. Meanwhile, some members of her group share their own reasons for why they love Urban Poling – take a look! Here is the link for the video, from the CTV News website: http://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=376115&playlistId=1.1853805&binId=1.1203428&playlistPageNum=1
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.
