Pole Walking for Seniors - Go Anywhere Feeling Stable, Confident and Balanced!

Nordic Pole Walking for Seniors increases mobility and stability

Feeling unstable and unsure of your every step is a huge concern for many people that actually handicaps their ability to do every day activities. Recently, I spotted a gentleman using Nordic Walking poles but not for exercise purposes; he utilized these amazing poles for stability and support. In his old age he was not able to simply walk without fear of tripping or mistepping. When he signed up for a tour company, it was then that they suggested that he use Nordic Walking poles to support his every step.  Ever since then he never travels without his poles.

Nordic Walking Poles are not only perfect for getting the most out of your workout but it allows individuals to walk confidently and participate in the activities that make memories, such as sharing a family day at the museum.  The reason that Nordic Walking poles are more efficient for balance than a cane is simple, posture.  When you use a cane you automatically lean towards the side that you are holding your cane, the pressure and weight is pushed onto that leg and arm that the cane is being used.  As a result your posture is bent to one side rather than upright.  Using perfect length poles that support you on both sides will correct your posture so that it is upright.  Think of the poles as training wheels, just as the wheels guide the bike and catch it as it is leaning to much to one side, so do the poles.

Nordic Walking is often called many things - fitness walking, ski walking, power walking, and pole walking.  Their all basically the same; two poles give you better posture, stability, and posture.

If you know someone who currently uses a cane in order to walk, give them a gift that will never stop giving, freedom to walk anywhere.  Purchasing Nordic Walking poles insures that you are being supported each step regardless of the surface since special detachable feet adapt to each environment.

We have a full line of poles including travel poles, camera, poles, and ultra light carbon/bamboo - View All!
