NORDIC WALKING (WALKING WITH POLES)

Increase your cardiovascular and muscular health – as well as your posture– with NeuroMotrix’s Walking With Poles workshops!

Our Walking With Poles workshops (Nordic walking) take place outdoors in a safe, pleasant environment. The object is to help draw the maximum benefit from exercise by getting your whole body moving. The hiking poles help you keep your balance and make all kinds of movements possible. Exercising balance, coordination and endurance takes place in a group on a trail that is perfectly suited to your ability and, depending on your condition, appropriate for taking breaks or walking even faster!

Walking with poles helps prevent health issues linked to aging and helps fight symptoms linked to a number of diseases (including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, hemiparesis following a stroke, chronic pain or fatigue, diabetes and respiratory illnesses, for example).

2020 Workshop: Walking Well With Your Poles

  • 180 $ for 12 one-hour sessions (for people living with Parkinson’s disease, financial support is available from Parkinson Québec)

  • In Montreal, Laval, Longueuil and Repentigny, refer to the schedule and parks as of August 4th.

  • No experience required. The only requirement is the ability to walk about one hundred metres distance without any technical assistance.

  • Bring your walking poles, if you have some, otherwise NeuroMotrix will lend you a pair!

INDOOR WALKING

Remember what it’s like to walk safely and well with NeuroMotrix’s Indoor Walking workshops!

The aim of Indoor Walking is to help you increase your ability to walk alone (with or without technical assistance).

Balance, coordination and endurance exercises will help you walk safely in different conditions, both inside and outside.

Learn how to walk better and, above all, to feel confident when you walk!

ADAPTED BOXING

This no-contact boxing program was developed for people suffering from Parkinson’s disease, but is also excellent for people suffering from health conditions such as movement disorders, imbalance, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and the effects of stroke.

TESTIMONIALS

LOUISE BÉLANGER

“I’ve been taking NeuroMotrix classes 4 or 5 times a week with my husband, Yves, since December 2019. We take classes run by dynamic, attentive, warm kinesiologists. It’s easy to take a class every day because it’s online. The five classes we take are Neuro Balance, Adapted Boxing, Neuro Intensity, Chair Exercises and Neuro Flexibility. All these different exercises make us feel well in mind and body. We are so happy to be here!”

LOUISE COUTURE

“I have Parkinson’s disease. My neurologist recommended that I exercise. I found NeuroMotrix and, for the last few years, have been coached by a kinesiologist who develops an exercise program for me every 6 to 7 weeks. Recently, because of Covid-19, the gym in the building where I live closed. So I signed up for NeuroMotrix’s online workout program. I love this program as it’s designed for people with my condition. Plus, whatever the weather, you can take part without any chance of falling down. If you have any specific needs caused by a neurodegenerative disease, you’re in the right place. The kinesiologists are very professional.”

MARGUERITE MAHEU

“I really like the exercises I do with Mathilde. The sessions make me feel good and that makes me want to keep moving.”

GUY TREMBLAY

“I remember the day of my diagnosis like it was yesterday. That kind of news changes your life and makes you reconsider everything. But I knew that my natural optimism and my resilience would shape this new future that was opening up for me. There wasn’t, and there still isn’t, any cure for this “filthy” disease. But it really helps to start exercising again in a variety of ways.

After trying a few programs, clubs and coaches I found my place at NeuroMotrix. Why? Because they understand when I have not-so-good days and they call me if I suddenly stop turning up. Above all, no one sets me impossible goals. No world records attempted here, but lots of support to stay consistent. In my case, that comes from my wife and sometimes even one of my two daughters: Romane and Florence. I really believe that I’ve found the ideal way to continue fighting for as long as possible.”
