Determine Your Level
In order to prevent injury, it is recommended that you take a training program best suited to your current fitness level. Walkers in this program work out at an even faster pace four to five times a week. The pace is brisk, so you need to be comfortable at the intermediate pace levels before moving to the advanced levels.
"I found the training program instructor very informative and friendly, really cared for us and we all got along. The people I met in the clinic are awesome. We intend on keeping up with our walking together."
