IMPROVE YOUR BALANCE, GAIT & CONFIDENCE

Urban Poling Activator Poles are not just for walking.  Join us for some fun, dynamic exercises with poles.  Using these specialized poles while exercising helps to encourage an upright posture while supporting both sides of your body.  The specialized ledge on the handle also promotes core strength.
