March 7, 2012 - PRLog -- Foot Solutions of Estero is giving its customers the opportunity to fight breast cancer with every step they take.  In honor of the upcoming Susan G. Komen “Race for the Cure” in Estero, Foot Solutions is offering a fitness product called “Pink Balance Walking Poles”.  The balance poles promise to help people improve their own fitness, by burning 50% more calories than walking alone.  In addition, Foot Solutions will donate a portion of proceeds from every pole sold to Susan G. Komen and their efforts to fight against one of the leading causes of death among women. More information can be found at

“We wanted to offer a way for people to improve their own fitness level, while supporting a good cause.  Whether they are participating in the “Race for the Cure”, or just want to burn more calories in their daily walking, Pink Balance walking poles are a great way to step up your fitness routine,” said Foot Solutions of Estero owner, Chris Cole.  “We also want to make women aware that, by participating in healthy lifestyle activities such as balance walking, they can reduce their own risk of breast cancer.”

Excluding cancers of the skin, the fact remains that breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, accounting for more than one in four cancers diagnosed in American women.  Studies show that women who participate in higher levels of physical activity can dramatically decrease their risk of breast cancer.

“With these statistics, it’s vital for women to really make an effort to increase their physical activity.  We hope they will do it with their pink poles in hand! This will allow them to, not only help with their own prevention, but assist Susan G. Komen with their fight against a cancer that has already affected so many,” said Cole.

Walking with balance poles burns about fifty percent more calories than walking.  It also significantly reduces stress to knees, hips, and back. Balance walking has become very popular in Europe, and is now taking off in the U.S.  It was originally developed for athletes trying to simulate cross country skiing techniques without the snow.  Foot Solutions explains this in detail on its blog,

“The benefits of Balance walking are actually quite substantial.  It strengthens core muscles, which helps to tone abs, buttocks and back muscles.  This type of walking also enhances cardiovascular performance by more than twenty percent,” said Cole. “As a health and fitness based company, we are obviously excited about the opportunity to bring the balance walking poles to Southwest Florida.  But even more importantly, want to do our part to raise awareness for Susan G. Komen, and support them in the fight against breast cancer.”
