Determine Your Level
In order to prevent injury, it is recommended that you take a training program best suited to your current fitness level. This intermediate program starts to challenge you with an increase in days of the week committed to walking workouts and an increased faster pace. Each week you add time to your workouts, but pace and frequency remain fairly consistent.
"The management and coaches at this location make everyone feel very welcome and allowed some flexability in finding my proper starting group; which in turn allowed me to become a very happy walker instead of a drop-out. Overall, I truly enjoy the spirit of everyone I have met through this training and look forward to another session."
