According to Scott and Stanten (2020), “Over 100 million Americans (31 percent of the population) report that they walk for exercise- more than running, cycling, and yoga combined. Despite its popularity, walking gets little support and promotion from health and fitness professionals beyond general recommendations. This is a missed opportunity!”
Walking is low cost, simple, effective, and low risk of injury. This makes it a great workout for corporate wellness programs, in-home personal training, community centers and more. This course is a great addition to your knowledge base and work with individuals of all fitness levels. Believe it or not, there is more than meets the eye about fitness walking. Learn the proper techniques, workouts, stretching and safety needed for successful fitness walking.
This HANDS ON workshop at VA Wesleyan College will cover proper techniques, skills, and content used in designing, implementing, and evaluating individualized and group programs in fitness walking for a variety of clients and their fitness levels.
