Tue
SEMINAR:royaloak @ ROYAL OAK Weight Watcher Seminar Room
Sep 12 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 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

MUST REGISTER by emailing Linda4success@shaw.ca

Your choice of:

TUESDAY SEPT 12 from 7-9pm or MONDAY SEPT 18 from 7-9pm

 

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!
