Lee and Michele co-wrote a new book on walking. Check it out at the following retailers!

Walk fast. Have fun. Get fit.

COVID19 UPDATE. During this extraordinary time, all outside walking classes have been cancelled. We are fortunate that we are still being encouraged to be outside, to enjoy our beautiful trails and parks (as long as we are not driving to get there), and to keep our bodies healthy and strong.

At WoW Power Walking we are discouraging group gatherings in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. We need to protect our healthcare workers, fellow Canadians and generally all fellow citizens of planet earth.

PLEASE WALK FROM YOUR HOME. Do not take public transit or drive to your walks.

Coach Lee is posting walk workout ideas on a regular basis to her Instagram feed and the WoW Power Walking Facebook page. Incorporate them into your personal walks.

If you would enjoy a virtual way to stay connected in real time, Lee has added two short Strength & Stretch classes each week in place of the walking classes. You’ll see them farther down the page. Sign up below and add the Zoom app on your computer. Before class begins you will be sent a link to join the class.

When covid-related restrictions have been lifted, you’ll find an updated list of outdoor walking posted on this page.

Walking Workout 90

This 90-minute class will challenge you with high-intensity interval training (HIIT) while keeping one foot on the ground at all times! We also include other wonderful workout strategies to make you stronger, fitter, and faster. Ten to fifteen-minute warm-up followed by approximately 60 minutes of speed drills and sometimes strength/balance drills, finish with a 5-15 minute cool-down and stretch. (Timing varies according to weather, location, and the workout plan as determined by the coach)

SPECIAL MONDAY MOTIVATION SPRING SESSION!!! This 60-minute class will challenge you in the same way as our WW90 classes with high-intensity interval training (HIIT). For this special session, it will be a flat terrain workout along the lake to enjoy the changing sunrise light through early spring. On the first day of the session sunrise will be just before the end of class. By the last class, sunrise will be just two minutes before the start of class! The only thing that beats seeing the sunrise is a walk workout alongside it!

Yoga classes with Lee are wonderful – a beginner feels welcome, learns, and is motivated to keep going. Meanwhile, yoga experts are encouraged and led to even stronger yoga practice. Highly recommended.
Nancy R. Oakville

Lee is the walking coach’s coach. She has created a thorough curriculum that breaks down the walking pattern into four basic progressions, each presented with helpful cues and takeaways. Not only will you be a better walking coach at the end of the eight week course, you will be a stronger walking athlete yourself.
Katie D., Austin, TX

Lee’s coaching makes all the difference for power walkers at all levels. Her proven methods of interval training and hill work, combined with her positive attitude and decades of experience, will prepare you for any race. Her great advice to “trust the training” carried me through a recent marathon.  Above all, her classes are fun, friendly and inclusive.

From the moment I signed up with Lee Scott I was hooked. She is very knowledgeable about power walking. The motivation and the coaching I received was invaluable in helping me reach my goals for various races. If you are looking to get fit, enjoy the outdoors and walk with a dedicated group of walkers I highly recommend her program.
Charlotte M. , Toronto

Nearly 11 years ago I participated in my first WoW Power Walking class and have never looked back!!! Combine expert coaching with enthusiastic motivation and you get fitness, friendship and fun!! Very important part of my life!
Melanie F., Oakville

Lee has transformed us from casual Sunday walkers to avid power walkers and participants in many organized races. Her knowledge and enthusiasm have enabled us to enjoy and appreciate the love of walking as a fitness tool and sport. She encourages walkers of all levels to strive to achieve their potential and structures her training sessions to accommodate each individual.
