Fun Fitness & Friends with Dive & Dash

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.

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…

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.

As I mentioned several post ago from time to time I will place random video and image content while the website is 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 😉
