Lee Scott, BASc, MA, found a passion and purpose that drew her to the health and fitness industry more than 25 years ago. After teaching a variety of group fitness classes, she developed the WoW Power Walking program in 2002 and the Simple Secrets for a Great Walking Workout DVD-CD in 2006 as a way to engage people in a challenging and sustainable lifelong activity. She has coached thousands of walkers for fitness and marathons, and she has trained fitness professionals to lead walking workout programs of their own.

Scott, an ACE-certified personal trainer, has shared her expertise at IDEA World Fitness and numerous times at American College of Sports Medicine's Health & Fitness Summit. She has also worked for several years as a walking expert for a well-regarded specialty program for breast cancer survivors at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

Scott has power walked more than 100 distance events, including a 50K ultramarathon and 32 full marathons. Her engaging presence and considerable knowledge of the latest research in exercise science have made her a popular expert for North American magazines, corporate workshops, fitness conferences, marathon and fitness expos, and television.

Michele Stanten, a walking coach and ACE-certified group fitness instructor, is the author of Walk Your Way to Better Health and Walk Off Weight. She is the creator of the My Walking Coach website and numerous audio and online walking workouts, most recently Prevention magazine's Walk Stronger video series.

She has also created training programs for leading brands and organizations, including Avon and the American Council on Exercise. She has walked many distance events, including a three-day 60-mile charity walk, a full marathon, and many half marathons. She also works with organizers of running events from 5Ks to half marathons to make the events walker friendly.
