Nordic Pole Walking
with family, friends and Neighbors!

By Dr. Gerred Popejoy DC:

I am a lifestyle doctor specializing in exercise rehabilitation for seniors. 

Nordic Walking combines aerobic resistance exercise and an easy walking exercise activity. It’s a full body exercise activating 90% of your body muscles.

Nordic Walking is also a cross motor function exercise creating new neural pathways which benefits Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia and other health conditions.

Glen lost 145 pounds

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, 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 .
