Pole Purchase Information

poles-collage

Nordic Walking or Mobility Poles from Leki and Exerstrider can be purchased online or through my Nordic Walking classes.  Make sure you understand the difference before you order so you get the correct features and accessories for your walking style. Poles may be suitable for more than one type of walking. Come try out the various pole styles on a walk before you decide!

North Shore Nordic Walking offers a 10% discount off the manufacturer retail price on select poles when placing a group order for walking classes, contact me for additional information. Also, while I try to keep the links and manufacturer’s information updated, please check out the specifications from the manufacturer’s websites for the most current information.
