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

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!

8 HILLS, 8 INCHES, 8 WEEKS

In 8 WEEKS, we are going to build up our fitness by climbing the 8 HILLS OF THE GORGE, and lose 8 INCHES from our upper arms, torso, waist and thighs.

In Nordic style pole walking you burn twice as many calories as plain walking…about 400-500 cal per hour on level ground and 600-900 cal per hours on hills. In addition strong muscles are smaller, and working those mitochondria make the biology of the body more efficient….all factors in losing 10 inches!

Whatever your starting fitness, you will be much fitter by NOVEMBER 15,  just in time for the holiday season.  How will it feel to slip easily into your favourite Christmas outfit, have a healthy glow on your face, and a stronger base of resolve to navigate through the holiday season more successfully?

This fitness course is for EVERYONE especially THOSE WHO WORK, and THOSE WHO SIT AT DESKS.  We start at 6:30pm and later in the course we will move the start time to 6pm because of darkness falling earlier.  Also affordable headlamps, that make you look PRO, will be available for purchase.  Whatever your fitness level at the start, low or high, you will be much fitter at the end.  EVERYONE WILL HAVE EXACTLY THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF CHALLENGE….from mild to mighty.  The Gorge Hills is a perfect venue for everyone.

PEOPLE LOVE THE CAMARADERIE OF THIS COURSE.  Who thrives better with accountability, a boost of commitment, and encouragement, to ramp up to the next level of fitness.  We all do and we have it in bundles in this course.

The Prescription for fitness in Nordic pole walking is THREE 30 MINUTE SESSIONS each week.  We mean business on WED NIGHT HILLS, so will pole walk up to 55-75 minutes on WED, and ENCOURAGE YOU to pole walk two more times during the week for at least 30 minutes each session.

IF YOUR POLE WALKING SKILLS ARE NOT GREAT, (or non-existent) or if you do not know the up and down hill techniques, NEVER FEAR, LINDA IS HERE…..TO TEACH YOU.  These last few months I have refined my teaching method so that everyone gets their technique going great, with pole tips lifting off gracefully.  KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?  You will be using the maximum number of muscles and burning the most calories.  (and remember, speed is not a factor!)
