Pole walking pioneer & founder of Exerstrider.
A true pioneer of pole walking Tom developed a unique style of pole walking following a running injury in the mid 80’s and went on to design and manufacture his own style of walking poles. Since then he has inspired people all over the world to take up what he calls ‘total body walking’ and has dedicated a third of his life to spreading the word.
Tom is passionate about active ageing and how the use of poles for stability and mobility can enhance lives and help people to remain independent for longer. His programmes are used extensively in the care home sector in the United States and he continues to advance his products in order to provide ease of use, comfort and adaptability.
