About Pole Walking
Pole Walking Australia is the Australian Health Professionals’ first choice provider for training, products and service for the Urban Poling form of Nordic walking.
We are proud to be associated with Urban Poling, a company that is Canada’s largest education center & distributor of Urban Poles.
With a vision to increase peoples quality of life through improving mobility, we provide high quality training courses for healthcare professionals, and provide all models of Urban and Activator poles and accessories to therapists and the general public.
Urban Poling is an evidence based form of Nordic Walking using specially designed poles and a learned technique, resulting in a low impact workout that activates the core and postural muscles, increases fitness, and utilizes 90% of both upper and lower body muscles.
Urban Poling is great for those who want to incorporate more physical activity into their lives, improve their posture, strength and balance, recover from surgery, or better manage stress. It is social, versatile and affordable and utilizes the Australian great outdoors both in urban and rural environments.
Urban Poling is unique in the Nordic walking community in that it is used not only as a fitness activity, but also in many different rehabilitation settings by Allied Health professionals, because of its specially designed Activator poles, which are a more stable pole. Areas in which therapists are currently using Urban and Activator poles include knee and hip replacements, spinal injuries and surgery, older adults, cancer care, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke rehabilitation.
