Welcome to Racewalking and Bonnie Stein's Racewalk Newsletter!

Congratulations on your decision to learn racewalking. I'm glad you've decided to join us whether your goal is fitness, changing your shape, speed or competition.  The Surgeon General's report on fitness states that Americans are killing themselves with inactivity. Inactivity is detrimental to your health, your waistline, your bones, and your stress level. Plus inactivity is a major cause of heart attacks and heart disease. The American Heart Association has rated "a sedentary lifestyle" as one of the primary risk factors for heart disease - right up there with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking!

Bonnie Racewalking in Downtown St. Petersburg, FloridaIf we know how important it is to exercise, why are so few Americans fit?  Well, it's not easy being fit.  If it were easy, everyone would be fit.  And we know everyone's not fit. In fact, less than 20% of our population exercises enough to even make a difference in their fitness level.

Racewalking style can enhance your fitness and can provide a better workout (more calorie burning, more muscle toning, less injuries) than regular walking.  Racewalking techniques can transform your walk into a workout at whatever intensity you choose.

You don't have to race to racewalk.  I know that the name, "racewalking" sounds a bit competitive, but the truth is that racewalking is a technique, not a speed.  Racewalking is for anyone - from former runners to those of you who are brand new to exercise.  It's for anyone who wants to get the maximum benefits from their walking workout, no matter what your walking pace is.  In fact, you can practice racewalking techniques at the speed that is comfortable for you.  All ages and all sizes can racewalk.

If your goal is weight loss, I recommend that you aim to racewalk every day (a minimum of 5 days a week of exercise will work).  If you're new to exercise, aim for just 20 minutes per day to start. If your goal is fitness and health, but not weight loss, aim for a minimum of three days a week of aerobic exercise like racewalking.







If you are new to exercise, please let your physician know that you are starting a new exercise program.
