2018…Let’s get fitter… easier, smarter!

Want instruction or poles?  Have questions?  Need a lively speaker? LINDA SCHAUMLEFFEL, Olympian, car accident survivor,  Nordixx Canada MASTER Nordic Pole Walk Instructor, Linda4success@shaw.ca  (250) 920-4005  

******************************************************************************************

NORDIC STYLE POLE WALKING LOOKS LIKE THIS!

Elegant, in alignment, powerful yet relaxed,  easy on the feet/knees/hips, and using 90% of the body’s muscles for maximum calorie burn and health benefits.  IT SHOULD LOOK EASY, RELAXED, EFFORTLESS.  You can’t see that 90% of my muscles are working, and that the “workload” is actually huge!  It is a very unique exercise. Like every new skill it takes time/practice to make it look smooth and easy.

Many people see this video and think they can grab poles and just do it.  HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT TO MAXIMIZE THE BENEFITS OF THIS EXERCISE, LEARN IN THE FASTEST WAY POSSIBLE,  AND SOLVE THE UNIQUE PROBLEMS YOU BODY MAY PRESENT, THEN TAKE A “LEARN LESSON” or PRIVATE LESSON with me!  Linda4success@shaw.ca

Note:  My legs and arms are much longer than yours, and my stride length is longer than many people.  So don’t be fooled!  The key point to focus on in this video is that my arm swings from the shoulder, with mounting pressure, “to the back wall”  with every swing”.  The pole tip responds by lifting itself up and replanting.  I am completely relaxed and have learned how to apply force effectively.  Look at how relaxed my hands are.

 

THE DIFFERENCE IN POLES….EXPLAINED!

Using the right tool for the right job makes a lot of difference.

Shaw TV VIDEO CLIP on “THE DAILY” with Dan Kahan

I think Dan did a masterful job to take 70 minutes of film about me and Nordic Pole Walking and condense it into this segment.  Thanks Dan!       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTnGZSbQ49k
