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.

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 with mounting pressure “to the back wall every time”.  The pole tip responds by lifting itself up and replanting.  I am completely relaxed and have learned how to apply force properly.

 

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
