Rule Of Thumb

Rules of Thumb to Remember…

It’s quite surprising the amount of people, who put Walking Poles in their hands for the first time – take a few steps… & are upset that they’re not instantly an expert. Well, it takes a little more than just a few steps – but not much more!

‘If you can walk – you can Pole Walk.’

There is a short learning-curve to master Pole Walking. It is important to Remember:

Rule of Thumb #1


The ‘Rule of Three’
Is a term Keenfit has coined to help describe what it takes to become good at Pole Walking.

Some people [a very small percentage] get-it in 3-Steps
… we generally tease & call those people ‘show-offs’!

Most people [that’s at least 97+%] it takes them about 3-kms / 3-miles or so

Or at least 3-solid-times-out
…The odd person – very few – it may take them a couple more times
– but not often.

Check-out ‘Don’t Think’ below in Rule of Thumb #2


So don’t be too hard on yourself –
go a little further or take a little more time
.. or double check that you aren’t ‘over-thinking-it’!
One of the biggest problems people generally have
. . . is that they think-too-much.


Rule of Thumb #2


‘Don’t Think’
Is a term Keenfit has coined to help describe
what people often do when they first start out Pole Walking.

They quite often think-too-much & even try-too-hard. When you are
starting out it is important that you are patient, that you relax, have fun
& of course practice. Most of all though – after you go through the
how-to videos & t-up your first-step . . . & when you take that first step
– remember… don’t think, don’t think, don’t think!

Trust yourself & don’t over-think-it.

 


Many people ask:
“How will I know when I’ve got it ?”
Well at Keenfit we want to assure you that
You’ll – Just know it . . .soon you’ll be striding along with ease!

We Breathe Better, Walk Faster & Further and Feel Great!

The CHIP (Coronary Health Improvement Project) Program recognizes that sustained, regular exercise is a huge factor in maintaining a healthy body – probably as important or more than the food we eat.

Walking is one of the safest forms of exercise and we were extremely please to have Sheri Simson come and demonstrate the Keenfit Walking Poles. Sheri is a very popular presenter at our CHIP programs. She is an enthusiastic and high energy, vibrant person who inspires you to exercise.

Some of the comments made by participants who purchased and used the Walking Poles as a result of her presentations were: “They’re wonderful. We get an upper body workout now.” “We breathe better, walk faster and further and feel great.”

I personally will not walk unless I have the Walking Poles. Walking with the Poles helps build my biceps and shoulder area muscles and expands my chest breathing capacity. The benefits are wonderful! I highly recommend the Keenfit Walking Poles as a definite complement to a healthier life style.
