Walking is one of the easiest and safest ways to get more exercise every day. Chances are, since you've been walking most of your life, you're likely an expert at it already! You won't need any special equipment or lessons - just a good pair of walking shoes - and walking is a natural movement that's virtually injury free. Best of all, it's an activity you can enjoy by yourself or with friends and family.

The in motion walking workout program is set up to assist you in meeting your physical activity goals based on how active you currently are. There are walking programs for beginners (relatively inactive individuals) to advanced (those of you already active and looking for a challenge).

We have tips and suggestions for you before you event start on shoes, walking technique and staying with your program.

Once you start, we provide you with a walking chart to monitor your progress and we will send you motivational tips and encouragement along the way!
