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,  (250) 920-4005  


2018!  OUR VISION STATEMENT IS “to create a community-based legacy of health through fitness with Nordic pole walking”.  Why just walk (using 45% of your muscles) when you can learn to Nordic pole walk (using 90% of your muscles).  FITNESS, REHAB, or EVENTS, Nordic pole walking has a place for you!


Nordic STYLE pole walking is very kind to your body (feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders and hands) and at the same time EFFECTIVELY makes you stronger and healthier.   The prescription for health with Nordic Pole walking is 3x week for 30+ minutes.  Go fast or slow, it works!  THIS IS SOMETHING YOU CAN ACTUALLY DO!  Results accrue quickly: posture, pant size, BP, LDL, insulin, energy, sleep, strength, balance, sure-footedness, coordination, recovery….

FIRST STEP:  Try a LEARN class…see if you like it!

  1. TO FIND THE LEARN CLASSES: click on EVENT CALENDAR (above tab), see “posterboard” and toggle to “month”, THEN FIND THE DAY, TIME, OR LOCATION of a LEARN CLASS near you.  Hover over the class you want to open up the full details.  Then you can register and pay through this site.  Nordic STYLE pole walking is a SKILL to be learned, and if you are like any of the 2500+ people I have taught so far in Victoria, you can do it!
  2. PUNCH CARD:  Most people feel really confident with 4 coached lessons under their belt.  So purchasing a PUNCH CARD for $30 at the end of the LEARN LESSON, gives you access to three more LEARN LESSONS, your choice of date and location, expires Oct 31.  It’s optional, but the smart move.

SECOND STEP:  Pole Walk Regularly!

  1. WALK ON YOUR OWN.  It’s so convenient….anytime, any place, just put on your walking shoes and grab your poles to re-energize your body and brain at home or work. 30 minutes will do it.
  2. FREE NEIGHBOURHOOD POLE WALK CLUBS are in operation NOW!  Check them out here:  (Or click on tab at top of page.) This is a great way to make friends, and get regular exercise through Nordic pole walking, explore new areas….and have fun!

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!
