HOW TO SUCCEED WITH WALKSTER
According to weight loss researchers, people who set smaller weight goals and consistently reach them were significantly more successful than those who try to lose weight all at once. The key is getting small wins that build confidence and a routine. Walking plans focus on short-term, reachable weight loss. Losing 50 lbs cannot be done in 1 week, but losing 1-2 lbs can. In a month, that's 8 lbs! Think of where you could be in 3 months. As the weeks pass, you’ll realize you’ve created better habits and long lasting weight loss.

One burst of inspiration isn’t enough to lose the weight you’ve always wanted.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a really nice little app. Will keep you motivated to achieve modest goals. I wish it had a way to exceed goals and customize the plan a bit better. I’m just starting back out but my goal is 5-6 days a week of some amount of walking to really establish the habit firmly. I also prefer longer walks on occasion than this offers. It does allow you to continue tracking steps, calories burned and mileage after the allotted time. It’s not perfect. It’s just a little motivation and awesome at accurately tracking time and distance and keeping that stored as a motivating review.
Not what I need
This app has lots of things I don’t need, and isn’t great at tracking what I do need. I was basically looking for an app to track my walks/runs, not to lead me through a fitness routine. Foolishly I didn’t cancel before the trial period so I ended up paying for it so I’m trying to make the most of it. I just went to check my progress since I started recording runs in June. I am extremely disappointed that it only stored my runs for the last 4 weeks! I cannot find the missing runs. I’ve also been frustrated with the app stopping the tracking while I’m in the middle of my run. I’m sure the motion of my phone in my pocket is causing this but it shouldn’t be this easy for the tracking to stop.
It’s probably a great app for somebody but definitely not for me. I wish I’d never spent money on it.
Walking is the best
Was looking for a walking app that would help me start walking more again and help me stick with it. Need to lose some weight, but don’t want to run. Found this walking app. The walking plans are easy to follow and do everyday. I like that it keeps track of how far I walked and how many times a week I’ve walked. Makes me want to keep walking according to the plan and not miss a day. I’ll update my review as I start to walk more, but so far so good. Thanks.

You can also contact one of fitness trainers or physical therapists to help you even more. They are real people with lots of experience, not virtual trainers, that want to help.
