Introduction to Activator Poles

Cork Sports Partnership has teamed up with fitWALK ireland to host 'An Introduction to Activator Poles' during Cork Walking Week 2018.  ACTIVATOR poles are an adaptation of Nordic Walking poles and have been developed by Canadian therapists to promote balance and improve mobility amongst older people, in particular stroke victims, arthritis sufferers, and people with Parkinson’s disease.

At this 1.5hr introductory workshop participants will:

- ‘get to grips’ with the special ACTIVATOR technique (which differs from that used in Nordic walking);

- explore how ACTIVATOR poles can be used to

  • Improve posture and gait;
  • Enhance core and muscle strength;
  • Reduce impact on joints; and reduce falls.

-learn about ACTIVATOR Programmes now being rolled out in parts of the country.
