Built in the late 1990s by Maggie Humphreys and Les Snowdon, Walking.org has been at the forefront of fit and healthy lifestyles by promoting walking for fitness. Both Les and Maggie have been enthusiastic walkers since childhood with a firm belief that walking is the best exercise as anyone can stay in shape simply by walking out of their front door.
Having both published a number of international best selling books on the subject of walking for fitness and healthy eating, the pair of walking experts have been interviewed and featured more than 200 times in a broad range of press, magazines, radio and television. Their most popular publications include Step it Out, The Walking Diet, Walk Slim, Fitness Walking, Walk Aerobics, and The Rhythm for Life - the ultimate guides to fitness walking, healthy eating and stress-free living. All are well worth a read if you're thinking of taking up walking as a cost effective fitness activity or looking to get the most out of your outdoor pursuits.
Following their phenomenal success in the world of health and fitness publications, Maggie Humphreys and Les Snowdon have turned their hand to offering walking resources to the world wide web with a website which offers a huge number of helpful walking guides, healthy recipes and even product reviews to help new and seasoned walkers to make the most of their walking and enjoy a fruitful life.
Les and Maggie are often sent new products to try out, which allows walking.org to provide a comprehensive guide to choosing the best footwear for walking in all kinds of conditions from mountain paths to forest trails or taking the dog for a walk. These reviews, currently range from recommended walking boots to new innovations in health and fitness walking as well as full blown brand overviews. Walking.org has only just began giving an extensive summary of the biggest walking brands in the outdoors industry, beginning with their Brasher walking boots guide that gives all the essential information about Britain's best selling brown boots company. After all, Brasher have been around since the 1970s, so who better to begin with?
In expanding their ever growing range of resources for the online walking community, walking.org now demonstrates a number of great walking holidays in the UK with treks to suit all types of walkers which range from Dorset and Wessex trail to hiking in the Scottish highlands. All of these adventures are designed to let people take in the sights, sounds and scents of rural country villages and the stunning natural beauty of the rugged wilderness, giving walkers not just a healthy dose of hard exercise from their long walk, but a memorable experience as well.
