Fall into Fitness

How to remain active during COVID

Are you someone living with a chronic disease and not quite comfortable heading back in to the gym but need a change from the zoom workouts? Now that the cooler temperatures are making their way into our lives, it is always beneficial to get outside for activity.

Are you wondering what can you do and maintain social distancing at the same time? Walking is a great low impact activity and also a way to get some fresh air to take in all of the beauty that is around us!

If you are living with a chronic disease such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis, a loss of balance or low endurance may prevent you from going out for fear of not being able to keep up with family members or friends. You hold yourself back because you don’t want to feel like a burden. Well, what if there is a way that you can get out and have the confidence and endurance to go walking? Would you be

Are you someone that is struggling to remain active during the current COVID pandemic? With gyms forced to close down in the beginning, people had to get creative with their workouts!

Zoom workouts or youtube videos were probably the most used platforms to keep people engaged to keep moving but it still wasn’t the same as being in the gym. Sometimes you need that person to push you a little past your comfort level or maybe you just miss the social aspect of being around people while getting your workout in at the same time!

Not to put down working out online, but sometimes that isn’t so easy for someone living with a progressive/chronic disease such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis who may not get the same benefit from these type of workouts that the “average” person might.

What if I told you that there is something that you can do to remain active and it is relatively easy and you can do it basically anywhere? Insert Urban Poling, aka Nordic Walking.

Using the Urban poles, you activate more muscles than traditional walking alone. It helps individuals walk more comfortably, more stable and helps to make steps more effective. It helps to promote an upright posture, better balance, increased endurance and an increase in confidence. You can take the poles anywhere, incorporate stretching and strengthening exercises with them, and help improve symptoms with your “disease”.

Sounds great, right? There is a technique to using these poles, but it’s relatively pretty simple and Urban Poling https://urbanpoling.com/getting-started/#training has videos to show you how to adjust and use the poles. They were created by an occupational therapist in Canada and I have to say that I was super impressed on the quality of the poles and how they secretly engage not only core muscles, but also arm and back muscles.

Don’t just take my word on this great tool for a great workout, try it for yourself. If you are living with Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis, come try out one of our classes to see the many benefits of these walking poles.

Fall into fitness and start your wellness journey with a pair of poles. It is a great way to get outdoors, get some exercise and have some social interaction while social distancing.
