You can buy these in line with your fitness level and training goals—in other words, they are easily customized.

How to Start a Walking Program for Beginners

Fit people, especially runners, are not born overnight. It takes long months of training to get comfortable with regular exercise, especially a high impact sport, like running. But, if you are out of shape and/or overweight (20-pounds heavier or more), then taking up any high-intensity, high-impact from the get go might not be the best idea. If that’s your case, then start with walking. Doing so can prevent you from getting injured and discouraged early on. So, for instance, if your goal is to become a regular runner, you should not entertain any notion of running or walking/running until you can brisk walk for 40 to 50 minutes with much ease. Therefore, whether you’re looking to just get in shape, or serious about becoming a regular runner down the road, here are my complete beginner guide to fitness walking. Note: I’m not a certified physician. So, a word to the wise, before taking up this walking plan, talk with your doctor first, especially if you’re over 40, have serious health issues, have a family history of heart disease, or are overweight.
