Mark Fenton’s paperback has sold nearly 50,000 copies, and now contains up-to-date information on pedometers, fighting obesity, nordic walking, getting kids to walk, and building walkable communities, all in addition to his tried-and-true walking program. Fenton has designed an easy-to-maintain exercise program that will get people engaged in a lifetime of walking, illustrated with full-color photos throughout. Chapters are literally step-by-step and include: walking warm-up moves, emotional well-being, heart health, keeping it fun, logging your workouts, walking in intervals, walking attire, safety tips, walking on treadmills, walking vs. running, healthy eating, heart-rate monitors, building endurance and speed, race walking events, using hand weights, protecting your joints, and much more! Mark Fenton’s guide is as motivating as it is realistic, and promises to become an even bigger seller as consumers become ever more aware of the benefits of walking.

All you need to get fit is your own two feet--and a copy of Mark Fenton's classic Walking book, now fully revised.
