Oct. 6, 2010 - PRLog -- To support its mission of better health through your feet Foot Solutions of Long Beach is giving their customers the opportunity to fight breast cancer with every step the take.  A new fitness product called "Pink Balance Walking Poles" will not only help people improve their own fitness, but Foot Solutions will donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for each pair of poles sold.  

As walking has become synonymous with annual Breast Cancer campaigns and is a popular way of raising awareness and vital funds, it is also an ideal way to help prevent breast cancer.  Fact: being overweight can significantly increase the risk of breast cancer.

Essentially, walking with the poles turns a normal walk into a full body workout.  Balance Walking engages 90 percent of the body's muscles.  The poles allow you to stand, walk and workout in an aligned position and better alignment challenges your core to be more active, creating a stronger, more toned and stable body that's less prone to injury.

"As well as supporting breast cancer awareness and research, pink poles reduce stress on the knees, hips, joints and back; help maintain balance and enhance stability; improve posture and tone upper body muscles including chest and core," said Foot Solutions Long Beach owner Karen Widerynski.  

"Walking with the poles also enhances cardiovascular performance and burns about twice as many calories as walking without the poles," Widerynkski added.

"Foot Solutions Long Beach is excited to bring these poles to the Long Beach community and we are excited about our partnership with Susan G. Komen."
