Can I Use Exerstrider for Mall Walking?

 

Can you use Exerstrider poles for mall walking or on health club tracks?

The design of our exclusive high-carbon rubber tips (a compound very similar to quality auto tires) allows you to Exerstride anywhere you would otherwise walk. The tips are tough, non-marking and provide unmatched traction on nearly any stable walking surface. They work equally well for mall walking and hiking on nature trails. They are even used in school physical education classes on wood gym floors (and you know how fussy custodians are about their gym floors). They also work great on composition tracks like those used in health clubs. 90% of the miles logged while Exerstriding are logged on concrete and asphalt surfaces. The tips are tough enough to hold up to paved surfaces and yet safe to use on even the most delicate floor surfaces. I do nearly all my Exerstriding on paved surfaces, but my all-time favorite surface is on the wet sand that is left as waves lap up on lake or ocean shores.

Many people ask if you can Exerstride on a treadmill. The answer depends on the width of the treadmill belt. Most home treadmills have belts that are just 14" to 18" wide. Since the poles travel alongside the body, it is not possible to Exerstride safely on these treadmills. On institutional/health club treadmills with belts 20" or wider, it is quite possible to master Exerstriding with some practice.

We love using our poles ... they have totally transformed our bodies. We have more muscle definition, strength, stamina and endurance. We've already lost over 10 pounds each using them just over the last two months. Your simple invention has really made a difference in our lives.

"Really looking forward to my new poles. They will be a great help as I rehab from a minor knee injury." I'll give you feedback in the near future!

Hi! We've had our Exerstriders since early 2000. They are still my favorite exercise. I live in rural Wisconsin and people know me as "the pole guy" when they see me on the side of the road, someday I'll stop in to see you and the newer poles! They look nice.

Your Exerstrider poles have allowed me to remain mobile and independent after a head injury that left me with a permanent balance disorder. My physical therapist recommended these poles, and I have used them for six years now. Have put over 4000 miles on them so it's time for new "tires" LOL. In the past...

I've used Exerstriders off and on for years, and they continue to be the single best overall exercise for me at age 66. I'm on my second set of poles, with many tip replacements over the years. Some friends at work probably 20+ years ago told me about them, I looked at the video (VHS back then, I believe) that you provided to one of my friends and I decided to give them a...

I have two complaints since I got my poles. First, having now lost 14 pounds in just three months, my pants and belts are too large. Second, I made the mistake of letting my wife try out my poles and now I have to buy her a set. Your poles should come with appropriate warnings!

I love walking with my Exerstrider poles! You quickly get into a "stride" and makes regular walking kind of boring. One of the best purchases I ever made.

Exerstriding made my abs hard as a rock and my arms and legs have muscle definition that  I once thought you had to lift weights to get. Thanks for inventing the most efficient exercise ever!

Once I started using the poles, I could walk a lot longer immediately. I lost 34 pounds! It's the best money I've ever spent! Your DVD instructions were very complete and easy to follow. Thanks!

The reason I am taking the time to contact you is to let you know how much this type of walking has helped me as touted in the materials from Exerstrider Products.  I go 4 miles probably 5 to 6 days per week in a college field house in the winter and outside in the summer.  It is an excellent...

I have a story regarding how I learned about your product. Please do not lose interest, as I do like to "tell the story" and enjoy detail. I was visiting my local library in late summer 2015. I met a younger woman in the library that had a pair of your walking poles. She reported a medical problem that interfered with her balance. She had researched...

I noticed immediately how the sticks helped engage my hips in walking. I got a bit excited and started rambling on to the therapist...Long story short, my wife and kids ordered a set as a Christmas gift as they are a valuable tool in helping me to get around.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for making exercise fun! I never though I'd actually enjoy exercise. Your strapless ergonomic grips really are awesome -- and so comfortable.

"I have experienced immediate results in relieving my leg and back from pain while exercising with my Exerstrider poles and I have fallen in love with walking again. I did 30+ miles last week and have had no pain. I have had my pair for approximately one month and feel the benefits of a walking program again."

With diet and pole walking, lost 75 pounds in a rather short time. I'm now 70 and hiking with an occasional backpacking trip. Twelve years ago I gook a treadmill test and maxed it. The doctor finally just shut the machine off and said I blew off many 40 year olds. Recently finished a hike starting at 7,000 feet with an elevation gain of 1,800 feet in 2.5 miles. Thanks for...

I love my Exerstrider walking poles. I mean... I LOVE THEM! I actually feel cheated now when I don't have time to Exerstride.  I'm thrilled with my decision to purchase your poles, and thank you for the TOP QUALITY!
