Leading an active lifestyle is an important precursor to optimal health, energy and longevity. With this in mind walking is an excellent activity to integrate into your daily routine and the benefits include:
WALKING IS SIMPLE AND GETS YOU OUTDOORS
No special equipment or designated workout areas needed - just you and the ground underneath your feet. The daily dose of fresh air and sunlight provide a valuable added bonus.
WALKING HELPS BURN BODY FAT
Walking is a great way to increase weekly activity levels and therefore burn more fat. Partner it with regular resistance exercise and you have a potent body-enhancing formula.
WALKING HELPS COMBAT STRESS
Walking, particularly in nature, is a great way to clear the mind and lower stress levels which will lead to more energy and a healthier body.
WALKING PROVIDES GENTLE AEROBIC CONDITIONING
Walking will gently elevate your heart rate, get your blood flowing and oxygenate your body. Just because you aren’t gasping for breath doesn’t mean it’s not doing you plenty of good.
WALKING DOES NOT ADD EXCESSIVE PHYSICAL STRESS
Walking applies minimal physical stress to the body and therefore can be performed regularly with little risk of negative side effects.
