Jeff Salvage's Race Walk Like a Champion DVD/CD set "is like a coach in a box. Spanning a DVD and a CD for your computer, the set brings the descriptions from the book [by the same name] to life while explaining all aspects of race walking in DVD quality video. However, the benefits of the DVD format do not end there; the interactivity makes it a coach in a box. It's friendly menus allow you to watch exactly the section you wish, over and over, with no rewinding! Have a technique problem? Just drill down through the interactive menus and your ever-present coach is there to assist." +++ The companion CD offers a wide variety of training schedules--for racing distances from 5K to 50K (including the marathon).

Jeff Salvage's Walk Like An Athlete two-video set (VHS) predates the DVD/CD set, and is still available for those who do not have a DVD player.
