Who We Are:
Walk About is dedicated to the walking lifestyle. Our articles describe real people – not super-models or elite athletes – who choose walking as the easiest, most-natural way to get in shape.
Fitness concerns unique to walkers of any age: Getting started, staying motivated, and avoiding walking injuries. We write about proper form, footwear, and useful gear. We count physicians and chiropractors, therapists and naturopaths, fitness pros and nutritionists among our regular contributors.
