One class.  Borrow poles for free.

MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS. You can register and pay through this site.  Click on button.  (VISA, MC, PayPal)  Small class size for maximum coaching!  PS  The best Nordic Poles available (if desired) for sale at end of class ($91)

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!

YOUR NON-POLING FRIENDS, RELATIVES, SPOUSE, VISITORS ARE INVITED TO JOIN AND WALK.  (Everyone wear your team colours and bring a sign with your team name on it…for the big photo shoot. Team colours means:  similar coloured t-shirts/tops, same hats, your team colour bandanas, or???  Smart teams will be prepared to persuade unattached participants to join their club for the day.)

  3. Loop-de-Loop….two loops of Westshore Walk Way (5.0km) (mostly flat, some undulations, 2 mild hills X2)
  4. Ain’t No Mountain High Enough Challenge for Quads and Trios (one 2.5km loop with two 1.0km HILL loops in the middle)

 

EXPERIENCE THE TRADIONAL “LOVE TUNNEL OF POLES” AS YOU ARRIVE AT THE FINISH.

 

SPECIAL INVITATION!  Do you bake a GREAT “trail bar”?

We are having THE BEST BAR CHALLENGE.

To enter, register for the Autumn Classic, then email Linda4success@shaw.ca indicating your willingness to participate in challenge, and submit your recipe.  You will bake your BEST TRAIL BAR, cut it into 1/2 inch cubes, then at end of pole walking event you will offer a sample to each event participant and vie for VOTES.  (We will have it set up for you,  kind of like a “tail gate” party.  You will receive your $10 event fee back in exchange for your special participation)  All the participants will have one vote and will vote for their FAVOURITE BAR.  The BEST BAR CHALLENGE winner will receive a prize.

EVERYONE IS ENTERED FOR THE PRIZE DRAWS!
