Walk: Walking Programs, Why Physicians Recommend Them as Exercise, by Ken Hutchins Ebook

Regular price $29.00

Walk arises from Ken’s seminal article on walking—first written when he was assigned to the Nautilus Osteoporosis Program. In its expanded book form of 114 pages, Ken explores the medical community’s fetish with telling their patients to walk and explains why it is not exercise or necessarily “better than doing nothing.” Walk also emphasizes the facts that doctors are grossly ignorant about exercise and that they must learn inroad principles before they discuss the subject. Includes many photos from the research program.
