What is Urban Walkim? Urban Walkim is the urban version of Nordic walking, a healthy physical activity based on walking with poles specially designed for this form of exercise. With proper technique, it works all of the body's muscles and promotes cardiovascular work and oxygenation of the blood. It's suitable for people of all ages and has no contraindications.

 The main health benefits are:

  • Activates the upper body
  • Works all of the body's muscles (90%)
