WalkAthlete™ training programs are designed specifically to teach students of all ages and fitness levels how to walk for exercise using proper walking technique. The great thing about walking is that everyone knows how to do it. Unfortunately, most people have never learned to walk with correct form and posture which means they are not benefitting as much as they should from their walking exercise. Using the right muscles at the right time to develop and maintain good muscular balance is necessary to build strength and endurance, and avoid injury.
