Chi Walking, the best-selling fitness walking book, is now an iPhone App to help you combine fitness, fun and fat-burning. Whether you’re returning from illness or injury, want to lose weight, or you’re walking in a fundraising event – this app will motivate and support you every step of the way!!
Unique among walking apps, the Chi Walking® app is a complete coaching tool for improving your walking technique and boosting your training.
With video lessons that show you how to walk farther with less effort, and audio prompts that help you focus on good walking technique – you can improve everything about your walking experience. While learning to breathe better, strengthen your core, and improve your balance, you’ll see how walking is easier, more enjoyable, and more effective when you walk focused.
Inspired by the T’ai Chi principle of moving from your center, you’ll learn to rely more on your core and less on leg-strength to walk your best. You’ll practice “mindful movement” – using a smooth and relaxing technique to save your joints and muscles from overuse and injury.
Danny’s voice will talk you through Guided Walks with audio focuses played at self-selected, repeating intervals. Track your distance, pace, caloric burn, and map your routes all within the app– you can even log notes on each walk to share with your friends! Use this app to start a regular walking program, walk your first 10K, or stay fit for the rest of your life.
Walking never felt this good!

does NOT run on iPod or iPad - UPDATE
BEWARE: "Compatibility: … Compatible with iPhone" appears to be an indirect caution that this runs ONLY on an iPhone. After I purchased this app, I discovered it could NOT be downloaded to my iPod Touch (2016 model) or my iPad Air 2. [For whatever it is worth, I have more than 1500 apps which run on BOTH and this is the first app I have found that runs on NEITHER.]
5-Jan-2018 update: (0) Apple refunded my original purchase for non-functional app, (1) developer/author has not responded to my report of needlessly-disabled functionality, (2) app re-aquired 3-Jan-2018 while free, (3) newer version (1.1.0 on 4-Jan-2018) still (BY DESIGN !!) does not load/run on iPod Touch.
So many flaws
Oh please if only I can refund this! So I just wasted money to try it and it has too many flaws. Sitting at my table listening to the fitness walk portion, the app said I walked .07 miles already and over like 40' feet. I am at my table not walking! Sitting. figuring out the app! Here are bad points 1. very LENGTHY DIALOGUE BEFORE WALK over 5 minutes that you cannot fast forward to actually get to walk. There is NO FAST FORWARD through that. 2. FAULTY PAUSE FUNCTION. If you pause and press resume you get to start over at the over 5 minute dialogue without being able to skip over it. App has potential if the focused on use ability instead of how to get to sell their other in app purchases. All in all I enjoyed the running one along time ago and thought this would be good. Love the chi concepts though that is a great system. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN APP FLAWS NOT WORTH PAYING FOR At this time.
Love this app!
This app is one of a kind. It comes with video lessons of the walking techniques, maps your walk and saves the distance, time, pace, etc in a database that you can review whenever you want. You get a great selection of guided walks - some are cardio based, some are for more meditative walks, etc. I gave 4 stars because I don't like how each type of walk costs $. I think it should be cheaper and a package deal. Also, this app NEEDS to sync with runkeeper and not just the app 'Map my Walk'. Overall I would highly recommend this app and the book
