April 21, 2012- Chicago, Illinois- Hey walkers, guess what? This past weekend was the first Annual Walk Leader Conference located in Chicago, Illinois! It was a great success, and a ton of Leslie Sansone Walk Leaders walked away with great information.
The Annual Walk Leader Conference is being established for Leslie’s Certified Walk Leaders, of all walks of life who are interested in health and wellness. The weekend was jam packed with continuing education on health living, walking workouts, networking and of course, fun!
The whole event was very informative, touching on the latest discoveries and business developments in the world of fitness walking. For newly certified walk leaders, it was a great way to study the fundamentals of fitness, and Leslie’s proven methods of executing fitness walking.
The founder, Leslie Sansone, shared her excitement at the convention “We have much to celebrate, our growing movement now has 300 Certified Walk Leaders around the country and Canada! We are impacting public health in a big way. No other healthy lifestyle choice has more research backed evidence to show that WALKING IS MEDICINE and will help people of all walks of life achieve their highest level of well-being! New tools and strategies were discussed to continue our movement – this celebration covered where we have been and where we are going! We know the future of our movement is brighter than ever as fitness walking is the most chosen of all health improving methods.”
Walking is such a healthy and natural medicine and is suitable for anyone and everyone, and it was great seeing the amount of walkers interested in leading the country to better health! We are so excited for the next convention. Until next then, keep walking!
