Evaluate your fitness walking training sessions!

A mobile app like Decathlon Coach can also be used to monitor your fitness walking training sessions in real time.

What information does the app provide? On your smartphone, you can directly consult your walking pace as well as your distance covered, real time updates of your GPS route and the calories you have expended.

Are you unsure about whether you have the time to do a circuit on your return route? Look at your stats and check your situation during your outing!

A heart rate monitor belt – a high-tech fitness walking accessory

You need a heart rate monitor belt to monitor you pulse during your fitness walking outings.

You can use this to consult your heart rate in real time at a glance, while also checking that you are in the target zone for your fitness walking training.

A heart rate monitor belt and the capacity to monitor your pulse are essential if you want to improve and walk at your own pace!

Monitor your fitness stats on Decathlon Coach!

Being able to evaluate your fitness sessions is good, but monitoring your stats is even better! Do you maintain a regular pace during your sessions? Are you running faster than at the start? Can you keep up the same intensity for several kilometres? The app is a good way of providing an overview of your fitness walking training. You can use it to compare your sessions and consult the history of your outings.

You will be able to closely monitor your progress!

Did you stop practising sport through lack of time or following injury? Are you keen to take up sports again in a gentler way? Start exercising safely by opting for active walking: a sport which is accessible to all, comprehensive, yet gentle on your joints.


Fitness walking, whether it is fast or Nordic walking, is an excellent sports activity for losing weight that is often practised for improving the figure. It's true that this endurance sport is a way of gently recovering or maintaining one's ideal weight. However we do not all shed weight in the same way, let alone at the same speed! These 3 factors have a direct influence on the number of calories expended during each of your fitness walking sessions.
