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!

Fitness Level Information

rate, heartbeat, and body temperature. (eg: curling, golf,
canoeing, walking, mowing lawn, bowling, easy gardening)
Moderate effort activity is sufficiently intense to cause
an increase in breathing rate, heartbeat, and body temperature.
(eg: brisk walking, swimming, dancing, raking leaves, bicycling
on level ground)
Vigorous effort activity is sufficiently intense to cause
heavy breathing, a rapid heartbeat, and sweating. (eg: aerobics,
jogging, cross-country skiing, squash/racquet ball, fast swimming,
