You really don't need a lot to walk for fitness. With a good pair of shoes you can head out the door or hit the treadmill. But, I like some of my gadgets and apparel and I always figure that any money spent staying healthy is definitely a smart investment!
Check back often for updates as I will be reviewing more stuff - walking shoes, pedometers, new books & dvds, and more in the future. And, if you want to know about something in particular, drop me a note and I'll see what I can do.
Omron Digital Pedometer
My new favorite pedometer! Easy to use, accurate and fun! Invest in this pedometer and keep up with your mileage/steps.
Wicking Socks for Walkers.
Wicking socks are essential if you are prone to blisters, foot or nail fungus, or sweaty feet. They are getting easier to find, too. Try a pair. Your feet and shoes will thank you!
Heart Rate Monitors for Walkers
Do you need a heart rate monitor? They are easy to use, and vitally important if you have any history of heart problems. Plus, if you are training or just want to build your endurance, or even just keep your heart rate in the "fat burning" zone, try a monitor.
Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds Review
Great indoor walking dvd. Anyone can use Leslie's dvds. Work at your own pace and get in a mile or two in no time right in your own living room. Read my review to see if this is the one for you.

This program by Dr. Andrew Weil and Mark Fenton, two of the biggest proponents of walking is loaded with great info for walkers. You'll learn tons of new stuff about walking --both the why and the how!
