Testimony from Laura & Jim

Laura-and-Jim 800x450A couple years ago my husband and I committed to a healthier lifestyle and walking became a part of that. After accepting a challenge to walk 250 miles in 3 months and DOUBLING that we became serious. About this time we purchased some waIking sticks to add a new dimension to our walks. I bought a map of the states and we made a decision to walk across the country...leaving Kalispell, MT.
In February, following a milestone birthday, I decided to join about 1200 other walkers in Seattle for the Susan G. Komen 3Day 60 mile, raising money and awareness for breast cancer.
When on a visit to my chiropractor they suggested that I contact Chuck Lewis and try out his CHUK GRIPS. After a short visit on the phone he delivered 2 pair. One for me and one for my husband. After a few short miles we were hooked!
In my training for the cancer walk I traversed all types of terrain. Lots of concrete, trails, mountain trails like Lone Pine, and the sandy beaches of Oregon.
Toward the end of my training 17 - 20 miles a day was part of my routine.
When September arrived I had walked close to 1,000 miles with my PINK Chuk Grips. Thats, right, when the plant manager found out I was doing the 3Day walk he molded some pink grips!!
During the Seattle walk I covered a total of 88 miles and 333 flights of stairs according to my FitBit. The Chuk Grips went with me on every mile. My sticks and grips proved to invaluable. I took the opportunity to share them with others along the trail. They were always amazed at how well they fit their hand.
I am back in training for the SanDiego 3Day this November. Walking trails and beaches of Florida. My sticks with my pink grips are like an appendage now!! Wouldn't be caught without them.
Thanks Chuk Grips!!

Testimony from Lori Barber

Hi Chuck,

Just thought I'd drop you a line. I went training with some friends the other day and took along the grips you sent me. Well they were a little skeptical at first but, everyone loved them. I found my pole striding was easier on my wrists and I could go farther than before. I didn't have the pain I was used to having. We put the grips to the test and they passed with flying colors. Hill climbing was easier with the multi-functions of the grip, we also got a few comments on them from other people on the trails who were just walking. I gave my poles to a senior woman and she used them like walking stick, she liked the grip for the way it helped her feel stable in her uphill climbs. The firmness of the grip is great, yet it is light weight. I get more distance out of my training than I did before. Keep up the good work.

Testimony from Rhonda McDowell-Rowen

Dear Chuck,


Thank you for giving me one of the "Chukgrips" to use on my cane. I have knee problems and I also have Carpal Tunnel. When I would use my regular cane it would aggravate the pain in my wrist. With your grip as a handle on my cane, this changed the 90 degree position that I would have to have my wrist in to use my regular cane. The ergonomic position of the grip placed my wrist in a position that was much more stable and alleviated the pain I had with the regular cane. I would recommend this to anyone who uses a cane. They would have more comfort and less wrist and shoulder pain, when they have to use their cane.

Testimony from Carly Hutt-Outdoor Educator

I am an outdoor educator and enthusiast who lives and works in the Flathead Valley. This past season, I used the ChukGrip for both snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. To my fortunate surprise, my muscles didn't tire and I had more power on uphills, because of these comfortable and changeable grips. The angle of the grip was easy on a wrist I had broken the previous winter and I was comfortable even at the end of the day. I noticed the strain being taken out of my wrists and into the larger muscles in my back. I was quite pleased with my outings! Several friends also tried these 'strange grips' and enjoyed the movement and ease as well.

Not only was I moved uphill easier, but on steep descent , I had the grip to lean on. I really enjoyed the flexibility the grip gives me to position my hands in many different ways throughout the day and in differing circumstances.

I would recommend this Chukgrip to anyone who wants a comfortable and easy way to hold their poles. Whether recreating or working.  I use these poles now and feel fortunate I found a way to make the end of my day feel like the Beginning!
