WalkingFit offers strength training as well as 3 categories of power walking classes – Novice, Intermediate, and Specialist. These categories are designed to suit members’ abilities and interest but we encourage everyone to attend whatever classes suit their lifestyle. All of our classes are outside and offer a low impact cardio workout for all levels of fitness.
Novice – This level is designed for anyone new to power walking, recovering from an injury, or looking for a less intense version of our traditional class. These are 60-90 minute classes that start with 15 minutes of warm-up and stretching followed by 30 minutes working on power walking form interspersed with strength exercises and an introduction to intervals. During that time you will walk approximately 5-6 km. Note: not offered during Summer Session
Intermediate – This level is designed for the seasoned power walker or anyone interested in a more challenging class than the novice level. These are 60-90 minute classes that include hill training and may include some track work while building on the skills learned in the novice class. During this class you will walk approximately 7-8 km.
BodyFit is a strength training class using resistance bands, light weights and body weight. This will be a 60 minute class that will provide strength, core and balance exercises to complement the power walking program. All classes will be held outdoors. These classes are included in the WalkingFit membership or can be purchased individually at $20 each.
Specialist – WalkingFit offers specialty classes in addition to our membership classes. These include guest presentations, retreats, stretching and race preparation classes. If you are interested in any of the above, checking the Events page will keep you informed on upcoming events. Note: there will be a small additional fee for these classes
