Walking is something most of us do every day – but we should be doing more of it. 63% of Canadians aren't getting the recommended amount of daily exercise, and it's adding up: heart disease, obesity, and high blood pressure are all on the rise. But something as simple as taking a few extra steps a day can make a huge difference: moving more leads to more energy, improved sleep quality, and better heart health.

And John Stanton knows how to get people moving. As the founder and president of Walking/Running Room, North America's largest chain of special stores for walkers and runners, he has inspired people across the nation to develop healthier lifestyles one step at a time. Walking: A Complete Guide to Walking for Fitness, Health, and Weight Loss is the perfect companion for your own journey to good health.  With three program categories to fit every type of activity level, from non-walkers to avid walkers, there is a program in here for you.

Set realistic goals
Design your own training program
Find the level of walking that's right for you
