ibodyWALK 8 Beginner Strength Cord Exercises Demo/Promo

Had an opportunity to add another series of 8 Exercises in a promotional video… After doing a 40min walk with poles at 140b/min avg, 10-11min/mi pace. I was flying no doubt… the last 10min I was avg 12min pace to recover…

Looking forward to getting started at KSU with the fitness & health interns to do the next promo in an office setting. That will be followed up on LinkedIn as I recruit businesses who want to be part of the ibodyWALK training breaks. I will provide all the training, one on one at no cost, and provide the poles and strength cords for those that want their own after week 2 at a super discount. The program will be limited to groups of 6 – 8 participants. We will in Georgia do live one on one 2 times per week training substituting at least 30minutes of a typical lunch break. In up to 6 business locations elsewhere around the county we will do the coaching by way of the virtually training system using iphones and androids.

For more on how you can participate please contact Terry D Kennedy / Founder of ibodyWALK at tkennedy@ibodywalk.com . The program will begin this fall so don’t miss out.

Get Walking! Got Poles? Looks Silly? Wrong!

onw-passion

… Let me say it again;

Get Walking! Got Poles? OK, Looks Silly? Wrong!

Athletes, Non Athletes, Health Challenged, Motivated or Not

LET’S MOVE.

I have collected 1000s of images such as the image above which are from around the world. Having shared with other industry colleagues like “Marko” (pictured center) who have led the growth of pole walking/nordic walking in their own countries and beyond. Marko resides in Finland and has been highly successful in leading the way for some time. The interest has now become a focal point now in the U.S. as we continue to experience continued emphasis on the importance of walking.

With ibodyWALK we will gravitate away from a one demographic mind set or stereotype one might suspect when you see others walking with poles. The key difference and the reason for the continued growth in the program with poles is simply in the ways the poles and tubing are being used. That key factor has drawn others who may not initially be interested in to wanting to be part of the experience and results.

This is not meant to be a promotional post, simply educational. Taking Your Walking to the Next Level is critical I believe in order to increase the numbers of walkers. I might add that we are getting away from the idea that one has to move all in one 30-60 minute session. To integrate motion that increases pulse, puts a safe load on bones/joints and increases muscle strength can all happen in 5-15min periods.

So join the MOVE while you TALK and WALK at your next meeting 😉

ibodyWALK Situp with Upright Row (under construction)

From time to time I will place random video and image content while under construction. I am working hard to complete each of the 3 ibodyWALK focus areas. 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 😉

A sneak peak at some roughs below

This one is an image of a portion of a ibodyWALK Situp with Upright Rows work for the Heath,Fitness or Sport.

I took hundreds of images that I will cull through to incorporate in to the Heath – Fitness or Sports programing for all demographics – that will be the first in my industry this has been under taken.

Do you have interest in learning more about the launch or being included in many of our images or videos at ibodyWALK – then give me a shout…

Your Doctor, Physical Therapists, Coaches or Neighbors would no doubt want to learn more and that I would be happy to forward on to you.
