WALK YOUR WAY TO WELLNESS
Get outside and enjoy the fresh air, while taking walking to a new level - add poles for a total body workout.
Coronavirus is invisible yet we all feel its presence. We're living in a time of great uncertainty where working from home and searching for new and different ways to exercise, prepare meals and maintain daily habits is challenging.
Imagine if this crazy time can infect people in a positive way and create a culture of self-care and collective care.
There's no better time than now to take matters into your own hands and take care of yourself so that you can return to work stronger and fitter post-COVID-19.
Think of me as your virtual personal trainer and coach - except instead of meeting at the gym or yoga studio, we'll workout outdoors (with pole walking) and online (where I'll train you to become your own wellness coach). Want to walk the wellness talk at work? I'll show you everything you need to know to become a wellness ambassador and lead our walk at work program.
Let's keep moving forward. Together. For personal, workplace and population health.
