We all have different goals - to increase our step count to 10,000 steps a day, to drop a dress size or to improve fitness - each person is individual.

So why tailor your needs to fit a fitness plan, when you can tailor the fitness plan to meet your needs? Walking with Attitude's unique, customised walking plans give you great results where other programs fail.

We offer an innovative alternative that's all about you - your goals, your needs, your progress, your interests, all done at your pace!

So, here's how it works...

  • Start by choosing a walking challenge.
  • Each day, log into your personal homepage and enter your pedometer steps and physical activity minutes.
  • Watch your progress across a virtual challenge map reaching selected locations along the way. With a click of the mouse you can view photos and facts on each exciting destination and even catch up on some health and walking tips.
  • Share the journey with virtual walking buddies from around the world and view their progress on your map.
  • Keep a close eye on your fellow walkers by viewing who's topping the charts on the Leaderboard.

"It's been almost two months now since I joined WWA, and I'm so pleased I did. I've lost 7.5kg so far, my mood has almost completely stabilised (I'm bipolar), and I now look forward to exercising instead of avoiding it like the plague :)"
- Mummymunt, Australia
"What are you doing to me? After joining just three days ago I am averaging around 14,000 steps (usually around 10,000 steps) and am chasing the next checkpoint. You have not only inspired me to get off the couch but also to try new exercise classes. yesterday I tried a body balance class - boy do I feel it today. Thankyou for a wonderful and inspirational site."

Walking with Attitude is a step tracking site...with a difference!

Where others simply track your steps, we've created a smorgasbord of 'virtual' journeys, walking plans, tools and trophies to help you reach your full potential - at a pace that's right for you.

Tracking sites will take you from A to B. Walking with Attitude will take you everywhere.

We help you set goals, track your achievements, get inspired to go further and start walking 10,000 steps a day and more! With a swag of walking plans, tools and challenges, combined with helpful feedback and reminders, we'll help you stick with it. Before you know it, you won't remember what walking without attitude felt like!

Our 'virtual' challenges and walking plans keep walking fresh, fun and deliver real and measurable results.

Following the wisdom that 'Distance is nothing; it's only the first step that is difficult', we invite you to embark on a walking experience like no other.
