AFTER WORK exercise @ near Spinnaker's Pub

De-stress neck/shoulders and re-energize after work.

Go home feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Try NORDIC pole walking with retired Olympian and Master pole walk instructor Linda Schaumleffel.

All you need is your walking shoes!

I’ll be waiting for you on the sidewalk near Spinnaker’s Pub with your poles.

We will quickly get into the swing of Nordic style pole walking on the beautiful walkway in the fresh ocean air.

Soon you will feel the harmony and rhythm this exercise,

The time passes too quickly, BUT you will go home energized, and sleep like a log.
