We take pride in working with communities across Canada to set up or enhance their walking programs with Urban Poles. Programming options include work place wellness, walking groups, hiking clubs, indoor senior fitness classes, mall/indoor track groups and snowshoe outings.
Urban Poles are available at wholesale pricing and to help get you started we offer instructor training. In addition to our nationally recognized Urban Poling Instructor Training course, we have an Activator Course for Health Care Professionals and Diabetes Training for Community Leaders.
This year, we are excited to announce the launch of our 2016 campaign, the Year of the Volunteer. In recognition of the vital importance of volunteers, we are pleased to offer our online instructor training for FREE.Contact us for an Estimate or for More Information

For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
