This is a fitness walk which uses specially designed poles to enhance the natural walking experience, it burns up to 40% more calories and uses 90% of the body’s muscles. The poles are used to get the upper body moving and to help propel the walker, meaning that the walker works harder than usual whilst walking, yet the support provided by the poles make it feel easier.
