The Wacky Walkers is one of many in The Villages Florida taking advantage of all the benefits that come with using the Poles.

 

No matter what we call this NEw wAY To wALk, we would all agree that we want the benefits ( the biggy is near to double the calorie burn followed by a dozen more ) which is reason enough to add poles and strength cords to any ordinary walking routine. There are many types of walking poles that are specific to who, where and why you are wanting to use the poles.

 

After leading 100s through basic Pole Walking instruction; then introducing the “Walking Neighbor Directory” in The Villages Florida, I was confident they were well on their way to developing another healthy habit in community, which increases their success. Some of these walking groups even come up with crazy names for their group; one of which is the Wacky Walkers. The Wacky Walkers is one of many groups that get together regularly and walk with or without poles.

 

Having said that; it was great to read an article I received a few days ago in The Villages Daily Sun Nov. 26th (which by the way, happens to be the greatest retirement community on the planet). The timing of this article also coincides with my family visiting The Villages between Christmas and New Years… And yes I will meet with as many of the 600 who I have given instruction and poles to over last year.  Even those that have never used poles and do not own poles – we have you covered. All you need to do is reach out to me for the Dec 28 – Jan 2 2015 daily walking sessions. Will need to reach to me via Facebook.

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."
