What exercise costs nothing, can be done almost anywhere and is a great way to build good strength and cardiovascular fitness?
Yes, it is walking. The best part is most people can fit it in to their day and by doing so can have the benefits of increased energy, a better metabolism, a healthier heart, lose weight, become physically fitter and much more.
If like most of us time is your biggest obstacle to fitting exercise into your week, walking can be the best and easiest way to get active and stay healthy.
Even things like parking your car 15 minutes away from your destination 5 x a week adds up to 2.5 hours of exercise week……….wow! Haven’t done any exercise for a long time? Don’t worry, start with a small distance and a slower pace and try to build up the km’s and the pace over time. Having trouble keeping motivated? Try walking with a friend or with a group. More often than not you won’t cancel or back out of walking if you know someone is waiting for you.
