This evening is an INTRODUCTION and HANDS-ON DEMONSTRATION of VOXX SOCKS and INSOLES.

This is what the hands-on demo looks like:

Many people in the audience will be able to try this test to see the effect of Voxx on their system!

 

Thoroughly researched over six years, these performance socks and insoles has put high technology to good use for regular and sport people, like you and me.  Their claim is to reduce foot, body pain,  and fatigue, increase stability, strength, endurance, and explosive power.

I’VE TRIED THEM.  (Linda Schaumleffel)

I NOTICE A BIG DIFFERENCE WHEN I POLE WALK WITH VOXX IN MY SHOES!

I gave them a trial last August and noticed a difference.

I am giving them a second trial now and the difference is unmistakable.  Foot pain gone and endurance longer.  Jumped from three pole walks this week, to five…..because I had the energy to do it.  I wear the socks under my dressy boots, and my feet feel like dancing all day.  Makes me curious to know what’s going on, and if it will help other people.  So let’s find out together on Tuesday March 28.

This evening should be entirely fascinating.  We are juicing it up with some good door prizes.

VOXXLIFE is a privately held technology company devoted to drug free wellness, optimal health and improved human performance.  The company develops innovative technologies to create wellness and performance products that allow people of all walks of life to enjoy an improved quality of life and achieve their true potential.

.
VOXXLIFE’s HPT, Human Performance Technology, is proprietary, exclusive and scientifically proven in independent testing.

HPT reduces pain, increases strength and endurance, increases stability and balance as well enhances range of motion and provides for faster reaction times.

.
VOXXLIFE realizes that people of all ages and walks of life are focused on wellness and optimal performance.

.
Wellness consumers are looking for products that will enhance their quality of life and are asking for natural, safe solutions for more energy, pain relief and enhanced mobility.

.
People have traditionally relied on products such as pain killers, vitamins, supplements, OTC insoles, custom orthotics and comfortable footwear and apparel to achieve these goals. Pain killers and supplements have potentially devastating side effects, vitamins are inconsistent and expensive while OTC insoles are ineffective and custom orthotics are often unaffordable.  More so, none of these products offer safe, instant and consistent results at an affordable price point.

.
Additionally, in the case of professional and amateur athletes, the specter of Performance Enhancing Drugs has seemingly invaded every sport at every level.  Athletes want and need safe, natural and legal alternatives to achieve maximum performance. Athletes are also consuming supplements, vitamins, protein powders, compression apparel, and high performance shoes all with the aim of improving their performance. People are investing in training and coaching to reach their peak.

.
VOXX HPT is the safe, natural, and instant wellness and performance solution.

Discover the potential of VOXX SOCKS and INSOLES

by participating in this small group (max 8 people)  DEMO and INFO session.

Really, this has to be seen to believed!

How many of you want to get healthier through fitness with Nordic Pole walking?

How many of you are stopped from exercising by pain, low fitness, or balance issues?

How many of you are fairly healthy but want to do even more?

VOXX WILL HELP YOU!

YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE TO ATTEND!  This is the simplest way to keep track of registrations.

The theory is that VOXX stimulates through the very sensitive acupressure points on the foot,  the mid-brain to relax and do it’s job better.  The mid-brain is in charge of all autonomic processes .  This includes such things as balance, pain, strength, co-ordination, breathing…..   I’m going to look up what are the autonomic processes in the human body.  What if those areas could function better?  What would that mean to your life?  We are just exploring the effects, and we are hearing some amazing testimonials…  Check it out for yourself at this DEMO.
