Those of you who have done speed or power walking know the benefits. Those who are new to the sport I can guarantee you will find it as challenging as any fitness class. Speedwalking engages the whole body but WITHOUT the “impact” on your joints that running causes. Once you learn some techniques involved with speedwalking you can continue with this well into your 80’s without injury to your joints.
There is a specific technique to speed walking both in the stride and use of your arms to control speed. The more you work your arms, the faster your feet will go. We will work on taking shorter strides, building stamina and adding steps to our workouts.
My program will accommodate all levels of fitness with the goal to give guidance and support to everyone so that they can reach their full potential. Whether you are a veteran of speed walking or a beginner, my classes will guarantee to keep you challenged.
