Get Walking! Got Poles? Looks Silly? Wrong!
… Let me say it again;
Get Walking! Got Poles? OK, Looks Silly? Wrong!
Athletes, Non Athletes, Health Challenged, Motivated or Not
I have collected 1000s of images such as the image above which are from around the world. Having shared with other industry colleagues like “Marko” (pictured center) who have led the growth of pole walking/nordic walking in their own countries and beyond. Marko resides in Finland and has been highly successful in leading the way for some time. The interest has now become a focal point now in the U.S. as we continue to experience continued emphasis on the importance of walking.
With ibodyWALK we will gravitate away from a one demographic mind set or stereotype one might suspect when you see others walking with poles. The key difference and the reason for the continued growth in the program with poles is simply in the ways the poles and tubing are being used. That key factor has drawn others who may not initially be interested in to wanting to be part of the experience and results.
This is not meant to be a promotional post, simply educational. Taking Your Walking to the Next Level is critical I believe in order to increase the numbers of walkers. I might add that we are getting away from the idea that one has to move all in one 30-60 minute session. To integrate motion that increases pulse, puts a safe load on bones/joints and increases muscle strength can all happen in 5-15min periods.
So join the MOVE while you TALK and WALK at your next meeting 😉
