Engagement that Works Walks and Talks

Let me begin by saying; as a health, fitness and sports professional for over 40 years I have experienced by way of educating, innovation, coaching, promoting and mentoring countless, that we are about to make a significant shift in the way we educate, deliver, engage and sustain desirable health and fitness for everyone. I of course am not anti health club, anti sports, anti coach, anti anything with good intentions that will improve health and fitness safely. In fact, I am all about the solutions that match today’s reality, which seem to change almost daily – one would think.

We as a society are trying to keep up with the next best thing, experience or product… Technology, the Speed of Thought required today and our Human Nature are looking to mesh in a way that balances the scale for a better life for everyone… Being able to do, be and have more by using countless technology drivers is not better, when it’s at the expense of you – the human seeking a full quality of life ).

 

We have to do some things that will seem a little off the wall to some, yet as my experience as been privileged to be part of the several of greatest trends relative to health and fitness in my 40 years in this space. Some are products, some are activities. A couple that I believe will be headed that way soon I will briefly touch on…

Yes, ibodyWALK is not meant to be another come and go product and program. What will make it more desirable is the multiplier that comes to everyone everyday to their walking. If we move to the Jetson’s age we may stand or sit and be moved from here to there in a blink. I hope not, as I want to experience physical stimulus and interaction with others. The purpose of ibodyWALK is to engage as close to a simple movement that we all use to go from point a to b (without transportation modalities – bikes, cars, etc ) and that is by WALKING.

The other area will be in how we sit, at work, home and leisure. This next space will come quick, and in fact has already arrived in some places. Trust me here; it’s not a fad. I am engaged with several potential partnerships that are going beyond the initial desk and treadmill at work or at the home office. There are as I speak – innovations that will encompass this next trend and beyond. Don’t be turned off by what it appears to be today as this will change to accommodate the greatest number of users.

About ibodyWALK

“Take Your Walking to the Next Level” with “ibodyWALK” It’s EASY!! Fitness Poles + Freehand + Stretch-cord Exercises designed for 8 to 80 plus. Health Challenges – (mobility, stability, prescriptive and rehabilitation) Fitness Training – (cardio endurance, strength, flexibility and weight loss) Sport X-Training – (core, agility, off-season) For 20 years now in the U.S.; Pole Walking, Nordic Walking or Fitness Walking which is the generic term describing a multitude of brand names (Google any generic to find a brand name). Most all brands have been well intended, yet without long-term participation and as such have gone virtually unnoticed for years. This I have discovered is primarily due to the focus on a limited participant demographic by an equally small number of active pole walking leaders. I commend their intentions. “ibodyWALK”tm products and programming will be a result of key partnerships (currently under development) which will bring a great deal of excitement and activity in the coming years. These partnerships include; Churches, schools, corporations, neighborhoods, active living communities, health and medical facilities in order to build on this unlimited venture. Consider partnering to “Take Your Walking to the Next Level."
