Let's Walk Together with 15-Minute Big Calorie-Burning Miles!
In a Walk 15® class, we take the best features of low-impact, aerobic style group exercise and incorporate them into a format that's easy to follow yet effective in results. Our walking-based moves allow all ages and fitness levels to participate and feel successful - this is a class for all walks of life!
Our 'total body walk' integrates multiple muscle groups throughout the body, providing muscle balance automatically simply through exercise selection. Walking-based moves mean anyone can do it, but make no mistake - you will get a health-club quality workout!
Music is the heart of our classes and is engineered at a pace that keeps you in a fat-burning zone. If you are moving to the beat, you're burning big calories! The beat actually measures distance with Walk at Home's 'steps to miles' system, and our classes are 3 miles on average. We include the added benefit of strength/ resistance training through the use of hand weights or firming bands while we walk. These are always optional.
Walk with a Master!
The Master Walk 15® Instructor course is a world-class certification that includes physiology, anatomy & kinesiology, cuing techniques and much more. The Master certification includes both written and movement exams - your instructor is educated and passionate about keeping you motivated and successful!
What Do I Need?
A water bottle
A pair of walking/running shoes - any good pair of fitness shoes will suffice - make sure they have good arch support and cushioning throughout the entire foot.
Socks - You should wear socks that fit correctly to prevent bunching, and they should allow for air circulation - it's key in preventing blisters.
Wear light, comfortable clothing that is non-restrictive - light, breathable fabrics are recommended. A T-shirt and yoga/sweat pants or shorts are an example.
A small towel or sweat bands for the wrist are a good idea - you'll definitely work up a sweat!
If participating in a Strong Abs & Back or Move & Groove session, you will need a Pilates mat. These are available at many retailers at a cost of $20-30.
