Urban Poling

Hike NS has partnered with Urban Poling to offer a Nordic Walking clinic, teaching you the techniques of this growing activity. Urban poling (also known as Nordic walking) - think cross-country skiing without the skis - has toning, calorie-burning and posture benefits that have made it popular in Europe for decades and a new workout favourite in Canada. Just grab your poles and go - no need for a pricey spandex outfit or a fancy gym membership!

About the Clinic

The Quick Start Clinic is two-hours long, takes place on September 22 at 10 am and includes pole rental. The course is taught by certified Urban Poling Instructor Lisa Dykeman, PT, and demo poles will be available for use and for sale after the session. Dress comfortably for a brisk pole walk! The workshop will run come rain or shine (unless pouring rain).
