If you can walk... you can Pole Walk! 



Anyone who suffers from diabetes, who's overweight or has high blood pressure and has been encouraged by their physician to exercise, this is the activity for you. 

 The basis is simple. Normal walking utilizes muscles in the lower half of the body while pole walking adds the use of your upper body muscles,  your arms, back, shoulders and neck.  Pole Walking turns your walk into a whole-body activity.
