What Is Pole Walking?

Nordic Pole Walking is also known as Urban Poling, Nordic Walking and Pole Walking. Think of it like cross-country skiing, but without the skis. The act of “skiing with your arms” tones your body while also burning calories and improving your posture. All that is required is a set of walking poles.

Pole walking can be performed anywhere you want to go, in any season. You can pole walk through town, on the beach, or along your favorite nature trail. Pole walking also makes a great winter activity to get you out and moving, and can provide you with extra stability on snowy ground.
