"A GIANT STEP FOR IMPROVING THE HEALTH OF MANKIND."
-Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H.

It's true: walking, the primary gait we use every day, is actually the safest, least expensive, and overall most beneficial way to lose weight and improve cardiovascular health.

Casey Meyers was diagnosed in 1995 at high risk for stroke or heart attack, and he has been out daily walking for his life-literally. Meyers (a fit and active 79) has conducted hundreds of walking clinics nationwide. In this revised and updated classic, he shows you how to achieve a healthier, happier life through exercise-walking. He tells you exactly what you need to know, including:

Benefits: weight loss, weight maintenance, losing fat, gaining muscle
Walking guidelines: how often, how far, how fast?
Pacing yourself: the stroll, brisk walking, and aerobic walking
Warm-ups: targeted stretches, posture, rhythm, and stride length
Gear: shoes, socks, and athletic dress for all types of weather
Safety: best times and places for secure exercise-walking
Lifestyle: eating smart, yoga, meditation
Questions and answers: the twelve biggest concerns of exercise-walkers

Walking is unrivaled in depth and breadth, truly comprehensive and invaluable for exercise-walkers at every level of fitness.
