Urban Pole Walking for Balance and Mobility

Monday, July 21, 2014

Two Sessions of Pole Walking will be offered at the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Senior Center. You may attend both if you like:

  • Tuesday, July 29th or 
  • Thursday, August 7th, 
  • 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Walking with poles reduces impact on your knee joints, improves core strengthening, improves posture and helps to promote a functional gait pattern.  There are over 58 research studies on the benefits of walking poles. A recent study found that using walking poles increased stability, balance and posture.

The proper use of walking poles gives you a boost with every step. Build core strength and burn 40% more calories just going for a walk! You will become stronger and walk safer.

Lisa Stubing is the certified instructor. Dress for the weather and bring water. Maximum number of participants is 6. Fee: $7.00 members/ $10 non-members. Pre-registration recommended at the Senior Center Front Desk or by phone with a credit card (no debit cards) : 206 365-1536.
