The New Way to Walk: Turn a popular activity into fun, vigorous, outdoor workouts for all levels
More than 100 million Americans walk for exercise and since the coronavirus pandemic, even more are walking. At the same time, the fitness industry has been forced to pivot and change, making virtual training and outdoor fitness classes now the norm for many professionals. In this webinar, Lee Scott and Michele Stanten, authors of The Walking Solution, will show you why walking workouts can be a great addition to your programming and how to safely pump up the health and fitness benefits of this joint-friendly activity. Walking isn’t only a low- to moderate-intensity activity for older adults or people who are unfit or obese. You’ll also learn how to successfully offer outdoor walking workout programs that are appropriate for all your clients.
Webinar attendees will learn:
Why it's a great time to introduce walking workouts
The importance of teaching good walking form
How to make walking a vigorous workout
How to organize walking workouts for people at all fitness levels
