SEMINAR:royaloak @ ROYAL OAK Weight Watcher Seminar Room
Sep 12 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

A total body workout in the time it takes to walk!

AT THIS CLASSROOM SEMINAR YOU WILL:

Learn what puts Nordic style pole walking in a class by itself in terms of effectiveness, do-ability, affordability, and enjoyment.

Excellent for those people in the process of losing weight for two big reasons:

1) it takes the weight off your poor feet, knees, hips, and low back while you are in the process of losing weight.  Every 10 pounds of extra body weight places up to 40 pounds of stress on your feet, knees, hips, but the use of poles in Nordic style pole walking can take up to 30% pressure off those joints.

2)  It wakes up your “mitochondria cells” so that they can burn fat more efficiently, and give you more energy.

TAKE NOTE:  Speed does not matter in Nordic Pole Walking.  We have the research to prove that it is the number of mitochondria you stimulate, not how hard your huff and puff, that activates the fat burning mechanism.

 

HURRAY!  If you like what you hear, you can sign up for an introductory LEARN LESSON at this same time and day the following week…so that you can try pole walking to see if you like it.   You can register through this EVENT CALENDAR, or contact Linda4success@shaw.ca
