Testing ibodyWALK Dive & Dash Concept in The Villages Florida
Took a small group of active pole walking residents in The Villages Florida early summer 2015 to test an event concept. The event will lead to increases in daily pole walking and fitness aqua swim workouts.
The great news is was a clear success. It was Fun, it challenged Fitness, and best of it brought Friends together. We pole walked 6 miles and transitioned run or swim laps in 3 different pools inter-spaced on the route.
Initially the reason for this biathlon of sorts was to inspire other residents in The Villages to pole walk throughout the year, especially during to hotter temp. months. Walking for 15 – 30 minutes then cooling body temps by transitioning to a pool session for 15 – 30 minutes.
With over 70 pools and 100s of miles of multi-modality trail systems in this 35sq mi retirement community makes for a great success story.
Come and join the wave and movement in this Dive & Dash. Will consider Pole manufacture partnerships as we grow.
