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!

Battling Obesity-Increasing Stability & Balance & Reducing/Eliminating Leg Ulcers

Dear Rosie & Sheri, I saw a person in the neighborhood Pole Walking before Christmas, and I was fascinated by the precision, the rhythm; it just seemed beautiful to me.

Being morbidly obese with balance issues as well as low self esteem, I was intrigued by the movement of the Pole Walking. I soon began Pole Walking every day. It is my calm in a stormy existence. I love these Walking Poles, and am proud to say I am wearing the feet down!

It has lifted my depression markedly, and I started Weight Watchers two weeks ago (I have another weigh-in tomorrow), and lost 7.8 pounds my first week. I don’t feel afraid to move any more, afraid of falling (which many obese people are & do), and I can say in all honesty this is saving my life, and my spirit which I thought was broken when I was dealing with the leg ulcers.

I definitely am looking to be an Instructor and to train when I become more fit – this way of walking has done wonders for my depression, my leg ulcer and my weight. God Bless you, I am so touched, I am working at making sure my Pole length and my arms are in correct position. God Bless you!
