Weil Integrative Footwear Rhythm Walker Walking Shoe :: Review and Giveaway :: Walkabout Campaign

“Our feet are our body’s connection to the earth.” 
– Dr. Andrew Weil

If you don't think walking is good exercise, think again. In fact, if you walk often enough and fast enough, the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other can satisfy your body's daily requirements for aerobic activity. Dr. Andrew Weil has long advocated walking as one of the best forms of exercise. Why you choose to start walking is different for everyone. From preventative measures to walking for a mood boost to post-baby return to fitness. Where you walk is also different for everyone. Whether walking to and from work, strolling along the same path every morning, heading to the park to walk the dog, or meeting friends to walk for fun, the 2013 Walkabout encourages all Americans to get out and walk.

What is the 2013 Walkabout? It is very simple. Beginning April 3rd, you pledge to walk every day for 28 days. When you sign up for the 2013 Walkabout, you will receive encouragement via email along the way to help you achieve your wellness goals. Sounds pretty easy right? Need more reasons to walk? Here are a few of the reasons walking is so ideal:
  1. Walking is what your body is designed to do.
  2. Among all forms of aerobic exercise, walking carries the least risk of injury.
  3. You can walk almost anywhere, any time.
  4. Nearly everyone can walk, and it's something you can do throughout your life.
  5. It's free!
  6. There's no special skill, training, or equipment needed – all you need is the right footwear.

Having the right shoes for walking is so important. Whether you're walking for fitness or fun, the Rhythm Walker transports you in comfort and style. The removable orthotic footbed helps your foot attain optimal efficiency, aligned and in balance wherever you go. The removable podiatrist-designed orthotic footbed supports the feet and helps realign the lower-legs, improving posture and balance. The Rhythm Walker also features a rebound EVA midsole to provide long-lasting cushioning and shock absorption.

I received a pair of Rhythm Walkers to review. I normally wear a size 10, but since the width is very generous, I ended up needing a 9 1/2. The shoe is very lightweight. After putting the Rhythm Walker on, you will notice that something is different right away. Just standing up feels different. You feel support and comfort from the very first step. This shoe was designed to restore your foot's proper alignment and efficiency. You can really tell the difference. In fact, it is recommended that you only wear this shoe a few hours a day when you first get them to allow your feet to adjust to the new level of orthotic comfort and support. Find out more about the Rhythm Walker in the video below.

Now that I have the perfect walking shoe, I am motivated to participate in the Walkabout! Our bodies are meant to move. If you walk consistently, you can help delay or prevent many of the complaints of aging – aches and pains and increasing immobility. But walking also has more immediate health benefits like improving your mood and help easing depression, boosting your immune system, and maintaining mental efficiency. The great thing about the Walkabout is the support you will receive. Signing up is like gaining thousands of walking partners to help you stay motivated. Not only will you everyone benefit from the social interaction, but you'll be more likely to commit to an ongoing program. After all, if you want to develop better lifestyle habits, it helps to spend more time in the company of those who practice them. If you want to walk more, spend more time with people who walk. Sign up with a friend!

So who's ready to commit to good health?  You can sign up for the 2013 Walkabout campaign NOW! Anyone can participate in Walkabout! Simply sign up as a pledge to walk every day for 28 days in a fierce effort to improve your health and well being!
