  • What is a Walk 15 Class?

    Taking the best features from low impact, aerobic style, group exercise, Walk 15® classes are “easy” to follow but effective in results with our exclusive 15-minute, BIG Calorie-Burning Miles system! It’s designed with “walking based” moves so that all fitness levels, all ages, all walks of life, can do it.

    Music is at the heart of a Walk 15® class. The music is engineered at the speed we need to keep moving at a fat burning pace. If you are walking to the beat, then you are burning big calories! Walking/Tennis shoes required, but workout clothes are not necessary.

  • Do walks ever get rescheduled?
