A Testament to Urban Poling
April 17, 2018 | By Urban Poling
Below you will read a testimonial from an Urban Pole User- Florence. Florence is a
frequent member of the Polercise group in Waterloo and she had this note (originally hand written might I add) that she wanted to share with us, and of course all of you !
Keep on reading to find out the moment Florence felt the difference while walking with/without her Urban Poles !
“The other day I realized what a different it makes when you usethe poles for walking.
I usually walk the halls in the apartment building for a half hour each evening. It helps me keep mobile and also being border-line diabetic it keeps my blood sugar level under control.
My son was visiting me so I asked him to go with me for a walk outside. I didn’t use the poles and before we got back he said “are you alright, you sound as if you were running a marathon”. I sat on the first chair I saw when I got in the front door and I am only 90 years young !”
Urban PolingCo-directors Mandy Shintani and Diana Oliver are women at different stages of life with very different professional backgrounds, yet they share a dream – to help others realize the many benefits Urban Poling has given to them.
The most important aspect of Nordic walking is to just enjoy yourself. After a while, the technique will become second nature and you will feel confident, efficient, and ready to take on the world!
