World Diabetes Day – fresh air, exercise and a healthy diet is the logical solution for millions!

Today is World Diabetes Day. Exercise and a healthier diet would radically reduce the pain and suffering of millions suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes accounts for at least 90% of all cases of diabetes. I have had many customers eliminate or reduce their meds thanks to their SWIX Nordic Walking Poles and an improved diet. Walking with poles burns more calories and reduces the stress to the shins, knees, hips and back. Some of my happy customers have walked off over 100 pounds. Fresh air, walking and a healthier diet – a WINNING combination. For more info about World Diabetes Day check out http://www.idf.org/worlddiabetesday/about

The benefits of daily exercise are huge.

Nordic Walking with the Perfect Length Poles and the correct technique is often the answer for athletes, those with weight issues, balance issues, joint issues, ………… The amazing 4-wheel drive action turbo charges walking for athletes and makes walking doable and comfortable for many that are typically uncomfortable due to aches and pains. Often the poles will totally reduce or eliminate those aches and pains. The poles also radically improve balance and stability for those with balance issues too.

As a ski coach I can not recommend collapsible poles with twist-locks or flip-locks. One-piece Nordic walking poles that are sized correctly will always prove to be safer, lighter, stronger, more durable and much more user-friendly than cheap/flimsy 2-piece and 3-piece collapsible poles that tend to rattle, vibrate, gradually collapse or fail unexpectedly altogether.

Encourage everyone you know to lead a healthier and a more active lifestyle. A sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy. Unhealthy is unhappy.

We would cut our medical costs here in the USA by billions if everyone would walk or exercise for at least a 1/2 hour everyday.
