Become a Walking Coach

WoW Power Walking Coach Certification

Isn’t it really quite extraordinary to see that, since man took his first step, no one has asked himself why he walks, how he walks, if he has ever walked, if he could walk better, what he achieves in walking… questions that are tied to all the philosophical, psychological, and political systems which preoccupy the world.
-Honoré de Balzac, Theorie de la Demarché

At WoW Power Walking we take the words of Balzac to heart. Since 2002 we have been asking ourselves why we walk, how we walk, how we can walk better and what we can achieve while walking.

If you are a motivated and inspiring personal trainer or fitness coach, we will share our 15 years of experience with you in our walk coach manual. Most trainers underestimate the workout walking can give their clients. Yet, people consistently and frequently list walking as their most popular activity for exercise.

Walk with your individual clients or start some walking group classes as a way to build your business. Yes, walk their butts off!

Considering myself a strong power walker I decided to take WoW Power Walking Coach Certification ~ Online.  Lee has elevated my own power walking to a completely new level.  I could hardly believe how much faster I became within only a few weeks.  My technique has improved tremendously.  To my surprise I got interested in races, took part in a 5k event and despite snow had a great time. Lee’s technique break-down into progressions makes it very clear for a new coach how to help others improve their technique; which major aspects to focus on first and which finer modifications to work on later.

Peter P., London

I have trained in the fine art of speed walking with Lee for more than 8 years. I am a runner who was always curious about walking fast. After my heart reminded me that it needed a bit of care, I found Lee. We have walked some 430 hours in the bright sunshine and in the dead of night, through blazing heat, numbing cold, rain, snow and even bits of ice. She has instilled in me the quest for the finish line be it my own 4 miles, or my crazy races with my kids and grandkids! Lee’s smile and stamina are that contagious.
