134 lbs Weight Loss!
I met Dr. Popejoy at the American College of Lifestyle Medicine in Tucson, Az. I explained to him that I have tried numerous times over the years to lose weight by diet alone, but it had always ended in failure because walking any distance created pain. After listening to his story I tried the Nordic Walking Poles and felt a major relief of pain when walking.
15 min. of Nordic Walking is equal to 27 minutes of regular walking burning 22-47% more calories, so it didn’t take long before I was walking farther with no pain. Since that day I have lost 72 lbs. in the first 3 months and 134 lbs. in 6 months and have participated in my first 5k walk.
I highly recommend this wonderful walking program with it’s additional exercises for Stretching, Strengthening, Breathing and Balance .
Together, we can change the world!
I am a Nordic Pole Walking instructor certified by ANWA. While searching for ways to promote Nordic Walking to my wellness program participants, I discovered Nordic Walking Nations with the first Nordic Medical Pole Walking Program in the Nation.
Their turn key R.E.M. program provides Rehabilitation, Education and Marketing materials to help promote the health benefits of Nordic Walking. I have found the information to be a valuable tool for my participants with chronic diseases, such as diabetes, or those who are inactive and interested in weight loss.
Nordic Walking Nations also makes custom Nordic Walking poles that are equal to Leki in Europe, but include $80.00 in additional accessories that other companies do not, an added benefit that has encouraged my participants to purchase poles and begin their own Nordic Walking adventures. They even have poles you can fit in a suitcase!
