Learn How to Turn Walking into a Productive, Full-Body Workout
MEA stands for motivation, education, and accountability. It’s also an ancient word for the deep core, and this fourth mini-course is all about walking faster with better form.
We have a total of 6 mini-courses that were released within the Fit2B Mobile app back in 2016. This fourth mini-course is all about how you can turn walking into an intentional, productive, full-body workout. We have chosen to release it here on Fit2B — ahead of the others and totally out of order — because of timing with our annual November Walking Challenge.
Wait, What Is There to Learn About Walking?
Oh, so much! Did you know that you burn more calories walking a mile in 12:30 minutes than if you jog that same mile in 10 minutes? But how can you learn to walk that fast… or faster?
In 2017, my average pace was 11:20 minutes per mile over the 3 legs totaling approximately 20 miles that I walked for my Portland to Coast team. When I first started exploring ways to turn walking into a full body workout, I had questions:
- Which way should you power your arm swing… Forward or back?
- And where should your eyes be?
- Where should your hips be?
- What is the best safety gear?
- Can you walk in running races?
- How can you use your heels to improve your form?
- Which toes drive the push-off phase?
The MEA 4: Walking As A Workout mini-course covers answers to all of these questions and more, all through our fun instructional, step-by-step videos, demonstrations, and easy to understand language. Purchase this course today and in just 6 weeks, you’ll be walking much more powerfully with better posture! Walking is awesome cardio and so good for your core.
What Does This Course Include?
Enrolling in this course grants you forever-access to 6 lessons that contain written, pictorial and video content + quizzes to help you feel confident about what you’re learning.
You’ll also receive a lesson reminder each week for the first 6 weeks to grant you access to subsequent lessons and keep you engaged. You may go back and repeat the written and video content as much as you’d like. Personally, I revisit these concepts every year at the start of race season.

“I’ve been a hardcore runner for years. While healing my diastasis I’ve decided the lower impact of walking will be better for my healing process.
