WOW What a Great Day!


The MOVE YOUR BODY, CHANGE YOUR MIND walking conference held in Waterloo last week reminded all in attendance of the enthusiastic and optimistic nature of walkers.  With participants from all across Southern Ontario it was an exciting and inspirational day. Workshops were presented to engaged, energetic walking athletes (nod to Lee Scott for the phrase) on a wide variety of walking and fitness related topics by some of the most sought after trainers and fitness professionals in this arena. The first of its’ kind ever held, the sold out conference was an opportunity for walkers of all levels of experience to meet, share ideas and learn how to develop their walking practise. The feed back has been overwhelmingly postive for the day and for this concept.  We sometimes lack an understanding of the athletic potential of walking and of the exponential growth of our walking community.  Networking during the day certainly clarified these issues.  Walkers are fully invested in fitness and in continuing to passionately pursue a healthy and engaged lifestyle.   Participants in the day long conference left Waterloo buzzing with new techniques to improve their walking performance, ideas for training programs and information about how to continue to deepen the mind/body connection. All in all a day well spent!
