Great day in Canmore with Mandy Johnson showing us the ins and outs of urban poling. A beautiful way to spend time outdoors in the Rocky mountains. Urban poling is so much fun and I learned a lot. Highly recommended!

I had been aware of Nordic walking (and this product in particular) for some time but had mistakenly thought it was just for older or less-mobile folks. Was inspired to try it when I learned it was great for rehab and strengthening - and might...More
