Do a lot of walking or have a walking fitness program, but feeling inefficient or discomfort, aches/pains or injuries? Want to be more consistent or experience true enjoyment in your fitness program?
What if small changes to your Position or Motion could provide far-reaching benefits to your walking and your life? Walking is a very specific repetitive motion that make posture and technique very important. Much of the discomfort, aches, pains and injury that occurs in walking is due to subtle repetitive strain or impact that builds over time. You may not feel these effects until a more serious problem exists. Walking is also one of the very few fitness activities that involve terrain changes. As the terrain changes, so does the forces of nature. Technique can dramatically improve our ability to cooperate with these forces of nature; to reduce both uphill effort and downhill impact.
