""Filled to the brim with 60 different workouts, 12 complete 4-week schedules, and step-by-step instructions on creating your own program. A must-have for the dedicated walker.""

It provides solid, easy-to-understand information and advice regarding many aspects of fitness walking, including detailed guidelines on proper walking technique and walking workouts to accommodate any person. "Fitness Walking, Second Edition," is another excellent book from one of the foremost authorities on the topic."

From the Author:

I want to share my passion for walking.
I'm so proud of this book because it makes walking completely accessible. Explanations are clear, pictures are colorful, pictures are mostly of real walker friends of mine, and there's no scientific jargon. I tried hard to make the book friendly -- welcoming novice walkers with simple how-to's and dozens of unintimidating workouts. Yet it also leads more intermediate walkers through workouts that can progress to half-marathons. And, above all, it's passionate because I am a passionate walker. I hope you'll enjoy this book, then come back for more when my next, more advanced walking book is released in early 1998 (also Human Kinetics). This one is an exciting combination that is a real labor of love because it takes loads of science and biomechanics, and boils it down for walkers who want more to be able fine-tune their technique and to build scientifically sound workouts and training programs. I can't wait to see it!
