Walk About Magazine?
Why did we start Walk About Magazine? Because, although walking
is the #1 fitness activity in America and walkers outnumber runners
3:1, walkers are routinely ignored or under appreciated in the sports
and fitness community. We feel there is a huge need for a magazine
that provides the information and inspiration walkers need with
the respect they deserve. With over 60% of Americans at an unhealthy
weight, its time to embrace one of the most accessible and
enjoyable forms of exercise available!
