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."
