EVERYONE NEEDS TO EXERCISE TO MAINTAIN OR BUILD STRENGTH, ENERGY, AND IMMUNITY, but how can you get in the prescribed amount of cardio and muscular exercise when sore feet, knees, hips, hands, neck, shoulders….are shouting STOP!
Retired Olympian and car accident survivor, Linda Schaumleffel outlines the compelling reasons why NORDIC STYLE pole walking (summer training for cross country skiing) is an exercise in a class by itself, that gives you a total body workout while supporting painful joins.
Linda likens arthritis to the TIN MAN FROM WIZARD OF OZ…. inactivity rusts up the joints. The rusty joints are even MORE painful. Linda knows from her own experience and that of thousands of participants that MOVEMENT lubricates the joints again, and….. it is a process that takes a little patience.
AT THIS SEMINAR, learn about the essential role that mitochondria plays in the body and how Nordic Pole Walking is the best exercise on the planet for most humans to create the most health.
LEARN HOW NPW IS SO EFFECTIVE, CONVENIENT, DO-ABLE….AND AFFORDABLE
………and why people with arthritis flourish with this exercise.
This could be a changing day in your life!
