Walking is great exercise, but it does little for your upper body. That is where Weight-Walking comes in. Armed with a lightweight dumbbell in each hand, you perform a series of lifts, swings and stretches that exercise every major upper-body muscle group. The easy-to-follow instructions will help you turn a brisk walk in the park into a low-impact full-body workout. All of the exercises are designed to flow with the natural rhythm of your stride. In a typical Weight-Walking session, you will do 2,000 to 3,000 lifts and stretches, burning 300 to 600 calories. This is a serious workout.
The beauty of Weight-Walking is that anyone can do it. Pilates is not for everyone, but if you can walk...you can Weight-Walk. You do not need to be an athlete. It does not matter how out-of-shape or overweight you are. In fact, the more overweight you are, the more effective Weight-Walking will be. And the best part...no spandex is required. Weight-Walking is a natural extension to most other walking programs. Whether you are power-walking, aerobic-walking, pedometer-walking, walking in the privacy of your own home, on the treadmill or at the gym, Weight-Walking is the perfect way to add an upper-body workout to your daily routine.
The book, like the program, is a walk in the park. At a slim 100 pages, it is not a chore to read. The large format (7 x 10 inches) includes plenty of illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions. It contains a whole section on dieting, explaining how to best tie Weight-Walking into your weight-loss campaign. It even includes sample meal plans, and charts to track your weight-loss progress.

About the Author.
Dr. Schofield is an engineer, scientist, entrepreneur, inventor, and erstwhile amateur athlete. In middle age, he found himself succumbing to the affliction of our times--obesity. Pilates, yoga and jazzercise were not his cup of tea, and so he invented a daily workout of his own--Weight-Walking. In three months he lost 40 pounds, transforming himself from “office veal” into a fit, healthy 44-year-old. He hopes Weight-Walking can do the same for you.
