THIS COURSE IS CLOSED AND ALMOST COMPLETE.

It is challenging for everyone to get into the HABIT OF FITNESS, especially when your mind says “no” and your body says, “don’t go”!

Sooooo….this is the program where you actually get competent and fit with Nordic pole walking!

I’M digging into my DEEP COACHING BAG OF TOOLS, to solve the issues that stop you from getting into a healthy fitness habit.

This group is shaping up to be quite homogenious…kind of low to middle fitness level, and a less than stellar record when it comes to success with any fitness program.  To boot many people have some kind of a pain issue to deal with too.

YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WORKING AT YOUR LEVEL.  I promise you we are going to take tiny steps AND SUCCEED!  I have a deep box of coaching experience to draw from.  The homework for session 1 will make you both laugh and cry, because you will know I GET YOU!

IT HELPS A LITTLE BIT IF YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN A LEARN CLASS WITH LINDA in the last three years AND HAVE YOUR NORDIXX POLES, but we are going to start from scratch!  THIS IS A GREAT TIME TO BRING A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER with no experience.

The NORDIXX POLES THAT MAKE IT EASY,

will be available at class for $91 (including tax, cash Visa, MC).

Learn the FOUR BASIC STEPS of Nordic Style pole walking so that you will know if you like this exercise and if it feels good to your body.  If you are like thousands before you, you will be surprised that there is a technique to follow, that this technique helps the body to relax/let go of pain, and that you feel powerful as you push on those poles!  Regardless of age, fitness level, and “problems”, most people find that Nordic style pole walking is very accommodating and DO-ABLE.  What a great way to exercise 90% of your muscles, and burn almost twice the calories of plain walking.

NORDIC POLE WALKING is the perfect companion piece for the great Weight Watcher’s food program.  This is a combination made in heaven.  Nordic style pole walking takes the pressure off feet, knees, hips, and low back that may be temporarily strained under too much body weight.  Nordic pole walking will meet you at whatever your current fitness level is.   Whether you are struggling to get to the end of the driveway, or are looking for an effective exercise that you can do as much as you want, NORDIC POLE WALKING IS THE ANSWER.

Convenient, Affordable, Effective, Do-Able!

SCIENTIFIC PRESCRIPTION FOR HEALTH WITH NORDIC POLE WALKING?  Pole walk minimum of 3 x week for 30 minutes.  YOU CAN DO THIS!

 

Sooooooooo….this LEARN LESSON is where you can try out Nordic pole walking for yourself!

RATHTREVOR BEACH DAY! @ CAR POOL TO RATHTREVOR BEACH!
Aug 19 – Aug 20 all-day

Our Beach Day at Rathtrevor last year is worth repeating…..so we are!

Basically we each pack our beach bags and bring our Nordic poles, then car pool ($10 to driver) to Rathtrevor for a day at the beach.  Bring your beach mat or chair, your lunch, drinks, and snacks, get into your beach clothes.  You can be a kid again!  Pole walk in the sun on the low tide miles of beach sand as often and as long as you want, lay in the sun, wallow in the water, snooze in the shade, visit with new friends.  The high lights last year, other than giving up responsibility for a day and relaxing, was having the time to make new friends, stopping for the best ice cream cone on the island, getting in a little exercise and sunshine, and then stopping on the way home for a great dinner together in Nanaimo.

It was worth it.  People are still talking about the day.  Why don’t we do this more often, we ask ourselves.

WELL, BEACH DAY 2017 IS AUGUST 20.

Email Linda4success@shaw.ca to let me know if you would like to go.
