Training for The MoonWalk New York

Taking part in The MoonWalk NYC means that you need to train! Here’s everything you need to get ready, help you get healthy and fit and even help you find a partner to train with. Once you register to participate, you can follow a week-by-week training plan easily accessed through your Participant Center.

You may already be quite fit and taking part in different sports, or this may be the very first time you have been motivated to get fit. Whatever your starting point, you must walk.

Because of the muscles you will be using, no other form of exercise replaces walking! Don’t be fooled. You may go to the gym each week and have good stamina but your walking muscle strength may not be strong. On the other hand, maybe you have never taken part in any fitness programme but you walk to work each day. You could already have good walking fitness and strength without even knowing it.
