As the title states, this quick 224 page book is a handy resource for anyone who has led a very sedentary lifestyle and has made the decision to start down the path of walking for fitness and health. Co-authored by the Sports Medicine Council of British Columbia the book has some interesting sections around nutrition and sports injuries that can occur even when embarking on walking as a fitness regime. With a forward written by Canadian Olympic bronze medalist Lynn Kanuka, this book is filled with lots of practical/common sense advice, walker profiles and touches on everything from tips on footwear, clothing, terrain walking, an overview of the psychology of exercise and how to involve your family and friends in your fitness regime.

An interesting and useful book for beginning fitness walker but a little elementary for anyone already established with an active lifestyle of one kind or another. ( )
