Surprise surprise

9/13/2017 by Greger

I've rarely taken a nature walk or hike without a pair of walking poles for over fifteen years. It just seems silly to ignore working the torso during these outings, since it is sooooo easy to add an upper body workout by virtue of these devices.

I loved my conventional walking poles since my posture, breathing, balance, pace, strength, joy, etc., were all enhanced using them. So I was somewhat skeptical that the tech embedded in Bungypumpers could add that much to what I already benefitted from.

I was wrong. These are a different animal entirely. Climbing very steep trails, descending same, rolling right along the flats... Everything feels smoother, faster, easier, quieter.... all the while it is clear that more upper body musculature is being worked to a greater degree than with static pole usage: shoulders feel it first, then arms, even the hard to reach transverse abdominals. I haven't figured out why yet, but I imagine it has something to do with the progressive resistance provided by bungy cord tension mechanics.

The only concern I had was this: would these poles, with the relatively extreme length of travel they undergo during compression, lessen the feeling of security while navigating difficult terrain? In other words, would users feel less stable and secure using them as an aid to balance or stability as opposed to conventional walking poles? Answer: no, not at all. I have subjected myself to numerous situations where not catching myself in an off-balance situation could have resulted in a fall. I see no significant difference in the ability of Bungypumpers to catch oneself in similar situations over that of a regular static pole.

These things are delightfully quiet, too, in contrast to the clack clack clack of regular walking poles.

My highest recommendation.

A very good workout!

6/22/2017 by Valerie

When I originally ordered these, I thought I would go with the medium resistance model. I thought yes, I'm 68 but I don't want to order something that is going to be too easy. So I ordered the middle resistance poles and was pleasantly surprised by the work out they give you. I was out of breath walking the perimeter of my yard (we have two acres) and the backs of my upper arms were really screaming...stop! That is an area I would love to firm up! So I am very happy with these Bungy pumps as they give you not only stabilization as you walk, but make you take longer steps and will firm up the upper arm in back where I need it. Glad I purchased them!

Now my arms take a walk too!

This really is a great way to use your arms as well as your legs when walking, and I think it adds greatly to the workout in a sustainable way (it doesn't wear you out so you have to cut your walk short). As another reviewer noted, I also got the upgrade when they did not have the product I ordered; I appreciated that their goal was to get a product into my hands rather than send me one of those bleak "back order" notices.

The slimline that I ordered was not available so the company upgraded to a more expensive product that included extra features. It is fantastic !

Always a pleasure.

This is a fun way to get more "bang for your buck" when walking for exercise.

The products are always presented accurately , and of the many products I have purchased there have been no disappointments.

Great Addition To My Workout!

11/9/2016 by Angela

I ordered the walking poles about 2 months ago. When I received them, I had almost convinced myself to return them as I thought I would not get the hang of using them. I watched the video several times and just started using them 2 days ago. So glad I didn't return them. I walk 4 miles every morning and this really takes my exercise to another level. I walk with these for 30 minutes and another 30 without them. They definitely increase my speed, therefore providing a superior workout! These really work your entire body. I feel so energized afterwards!! I really can't add anything else to this review other than to tell others to order them and I promise you will not regret it!

Great purchase!

I love the walking poles. I recently had a spinal injury and these poles provide stability and allow me the opportunity to work out my arms as well. Surprisingly, I feel the effect on my abs also.

I look forward to using them for a long time!!

I Change to Five Stars!

7/16/2016 by Dee

My earlier review was a single star, as I was having difficulty keep the poles at the correct height. However, my bad! Definitely operator error and I love these and am simply addicted. I don't walk without them; they have significantly increased the result of a walk! I've given three sets of them as gifts and recommend them highly.

very sturdy, easy to learn technique. I hope more people buy them so I don't feel conspicuous when I use them.

The BungyPump Story

BungyPump - Fitness Walking Poles

Power Walk

It’s not as high impact as other forms of exercise, and that’s exactly what makes walking such a healthy way to stay fit. Now, walking can do even more than strengthen your lower body.

BungyPump fitness poles transform a walk or hike into a total body workout that activates 90% of your muscles and burns up to 77% more calories compared to normal walking. Unlike rigid walking sticks, BungyPump features built-in suspension and provides smooth and steady resistance every time the poles are pressed down, no jarring or straining. The amount of resistance varies by model, ranging from 8 pounds for
recreational walkers to 13 pounds for more active lifestyles. Whichever BungyPump model you choose, the pole height is adjustable.

BungyPump originated in Sweden as an off-season training tool for cross-country skiers. But, given its ease of use, we’re not surprised it has become a favorite form of exercise among Nordic people from all walks of life. Physical therapists have even been known to recommend BungyPump for those recovering from injuries and back problems. These poles are made for strengthening not only your legs, but your core and arms as well.
