ibodyWALK reviews another great branding image

ibodyWALK header image

Listen to several of those who gave me their input about the branding images. All these images will ultimately lead the best choice based on lots of great input.  Which one did you like, or not.  I used red white and blue and this second image was neon green and blue. If you have an idea for one, please send it to my email at tkennedy@ibodywalk.com.

Till next time another weekend of instructional images and videos. Make sure you stay informed of the happenings by going to the top of the Blog and joining one or all the social medias. The Blog will be one of the last places information is posted.

ibodyWALK Logo and Branding ( wants to here from you )

red white blue with ibodywalk tm 4200 x 1100 aprox

What happened before my one minute pitch during the Shark Tank interview for the show was clear to me that we are on track to break the stereotype that most think of when they see someone walking with poles. The change is here to overcome the stereotype whether you walk or do not with poles. There is so much more and with that the rising tide of participation in the U.S. raises all ships 😉

I presented to a seasoned Fitness Professional who saw these images above before I pitched my ideas. He said; “no need to say anything, I get it, in fact I see poles out here in Santa Monica, California a lot. Really was not attracted to doing it myself, as I am a runner. Yet these images add something that gives me more and opens up to doing it with others anywhere….”

If you have an opinion, of course give me what you like and do not like, or what you hope for to grow ibodyWALK…

Reviewing a few branding options in the header and this post – Which one do you like, or not. If you have an idea for one, please send it to my email at tkennedy@ibodywalk.com

These of course will be in Health – Fitness & Sport, of which there will be many levels in order to accommodate the unlimited demographic I am seeking. If you have an area of interest you would like to request – please do 😉 And if you would like to contribute with me in areas of programming, product or future population groups that interest you – please do 😉 Maybe you want to be on the idea side, and that is of course welcomed – please do 😉

ibodyWALK will benefit from the Health Technology Revolution

thevitalityinstitute.orgdisney

Be ready for Technology to continue to advance to connect, direct and provide desired outcomes in health and fitness intuitively( mindlessly ) virtually daily. All the tools including ibodyWALK will hope to utilize universally the pathway that our Technology leads… The larger problem will be as the ideas and real solutions come to market, almost instantly we will be bombarded with the next greatest technology to deliver results. Too many choices…

The Poles themselves and the modifications ( evolutionary advancements ) will occur in spite of the delivery tool which stimulates/triggers one to move, educates, motivates, monitors, rewards, etc. and then begins again… And that’s just for starters.

Great article with a company I hope collaborate in the near future – http://thevitalityinstitute.org/disney-and-technology-where-dreams-of-better-health-come-true/#sthash.F3hS15YA.88HfWs75.dpbs

Kaiser Permanente recommends Walking…we will add ibodyWALK

With ibodyWALK everyone in every demographic will be able “Take Your Walking to the Next Level” This is an exciting time 😉 I like to say a; “I remember when walking was for only a few….”

This is a great video with a quick list of reasons to simply to Walk. I will be creating a video in time that expresses why putting  ibodyWALK in to your step every day is happily a priority.

Walking is a low-impact exercise accessible to just about everybody. It’s safe, simple, and doesn’t cost anything. George Halvorson, Chairman & CEO of Kaiser Permanente, explains the numerous health benefits of a regular walking regime: reduced risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. Physical activity need not be strenuous for an individual to reap significant health benefits; just 30 minutes a day (or two 15 minute sessions) of brisk walking will do the trick.

The beauty of adding the Poles and Stretch-cords to Walking are so numerous… They simply out number the reasons not get started today. When you can almost double the effect of regular walking, why would you wait…

For 20 years now in the U.S. Pole Walking, Nordic Walking or Fitness Walking which we can call 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.

The final “ibodyWALK”tm products and programming will be a result of key partnerships (released soon) which will bring a great deal of excitement and activity. We will set up demos at no charge in; churches, schools, corporations, neighborhoods, active living communities, health and medical facilities in order to build on this unlimited venture.

The proof of concept has been successfully demonstrated by the consumer demand beginning in the spring of 2012 thru spring of 2013 in my previous Pole Walking initiatives. This has led to over 3000 participants from around the country and counting who own poles and have begun to pole walk. In response to 100s of personal conversations and the overwhelming requests I needed to support this growth with a concept name. Drum roll for the Next PC of Walking“ibodyWALK”tm. This will quickly create a movement that will take “ibodyWALK”tm to be the “Next Health and Fitness Wave of this Millennium”tk. There will be easy to learn online videos, instructional materials which can be combined with any Fitness Walking Pole as we launch in to spring of 2014.

The key motivation for me with “ibodyWALK”tm is a purposed solution that quickly answers the lack of human movement (physical fitness) in our busy day using a simple to use tool and activity. The multiplying health effect of walking with poles with proper form and effort can deliver near to 2 x the benefits of that of regular walking (the field testing study at the Cooper Institute by Church and colleagues in 2002 is one of many Pole Walking research studies). When the programming of “ibodyWALK”tm makes the additions of the Poles, Freehand exercises and the Stretch-cords the benefits to a wider cross-section of participants cannot be matched anywhere.

Come and join us!! Let us change the way we WALK, why we WALK, where we WALK and of course who we WALK with for better health, fitness and sport in the U.S.. By doing so you will be joining millions of other walkers who will “Take Your Walking to the Next Level”.

Walking at your Next Level has added…

… Just added Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn pages for those whom are looking to stay informed as we rollout ibodyWALK in to 2014… And as always any questions can come direct to the Founder Terry D Kennedy @ ibodywalk@gmail.com .
