TRY NORDIC STYLE POLE WALKING.  See if you like it!

In this lesson learn why NORDIC STYLE pole walking gives you the most benefit.  Learn how to set up your poles correctly.

THEN learn step-by-step, how to transform plain walking into an exercise that utilizes 90% of your muscles, de-stress neck/shoulders, straightens out your posture, builds “core muscles of steel”, takes pressure off feet/knees/hips, AND FEELS HARMONIOUS and EMPOWERING to do.  You will be pleasantly surprised with Nordic style pole walking.

Borrow poles for the class for free.  Don’t worry…I have taught over 2500 people so far, and I will help you feel at home, and in the right place!  The objective of the lesson is for you to try Nordic style pole walking to see if you like it.  If you are like most people who have gone before you, you will be happy you came to this LEARN lesson, and surprised that NPW is so easy on the body.

If you feel like buying poles at the end of the lesson, the Nordixx poles that everyone wants will be available for $91 which includes tax.  Cash, cheque, Visa, MC.

YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS.   PS….dress for the weather.

PS…..special offer.  Most people feel confident about Nordic pole walking after 3 more coaching sessions.  To enable your learning, at the end of the LEARN class you may purchase a 3-punch card which enables you to take 3 more LEARN classes before the end of Oct 2018, and save 50%.  The 3-PUNCH CARD IS $30.

By Jove, they've got it!

LEARN: Spinnakers @ near Spinnakers Pub
Oct 24 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Try Nordic Pole walking to see if you like it.

When you look at my landing page video of me pole walking Nordic style,

I make it look effortless.

The biggest thing to pole walking is to unlearn old habits, let go of pre-conceived notions,

and to relax and let the body help you master a very effective movement.

The fastest learning comes when you have an experienced coach

to lead you through the maze in the most simple efficient way,

and to instantly address your special concerns.

THIS LEARN LESSON IS THE BEST INTRODUCTION YOU CAN GET

AS IT SETS YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH FROM SQUARE ONE!

In this way you can maximize the results from the time you spend on exercise!

 

MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS.  Register through this website or email Linda4success@shaw.ca

With the right 10% more effort you can easily create 50% more fitness results. I invite you to come along on this journey with me.
