Walking Gear



You don’t need much to power walk! Here’s a list of items you might want to bring along.

  • Comfortable clothing, shoes and water.

  • Pedometer or an iphone/smartphone app to keep track of your steps.

  • Hat – either to keep you warm or keep your head and face from getting a sunburn.

  • Kleenex – you’re sure to get a runny nose either from cold or seasonal allergies.

  • Sunscreen to minimize burning and help prevent skin cancer.

  • Sunglasses – your eyes also need protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

  • Lip Balm – keep your lips moist and protected from dry summer heat and cold winter days.

  • Insect repellent – help keep the insects away when walking in a park or near water.

  • Band-Aids – just in case you get a blister or other minor injury.

Tips to consider when buying walking shoes:

  • Quality shoes can last longer and may be worth the expense.

  • Find a shoe that fits and feels good.

  • Look for firmness in the heel, and good arch supports.

  • Try shoes on with the same socks you will walk in.

  • Replace worn shoes. They may be the cause of any new aches or pains.
