Improvements in balance and gait have been validated by the University of New Hampshire’s Department of Kinesiology.

“Walk for Life participants improved their walking speed, step length, and time spent on each leg during walking. They also experienced an improvement in their overall balance confidence.”

"Walk and be happy; walk and be healthy. The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose."

What you do today will be easier to do tomorrow.

What you don't do today will be more difficult tomorrow.

Everyone knows that Walking equals Health.

Quality walking is both a measure and indication of fitness and longevity. To find quality walking, we go beyond popular suggestions, fashions and opinions and look for the model of objective criteria in nature itself. The exclusive contribution of the Walk for Life program is in its strategies to engage the organic subconscious to correct itself.

Co-ordination: how to achieve harmonious cooperation between all body parts with an integrative perspective, awakening your organic intelligence of spontaneous self-correction.

Propulsion: how to use the alternating shifting of weight from one leg to the other with the undulating rhythmical wave for generating the propulsion into space for walking.

Impact: how to outsmart gravity by stepping in a way that loads the body with the rebounding force from the ground using the impact of upward elastic forces.
