Try walking in 2007!

Walking is the most natural and simple form of movement, and an excellent all round mode of exercise. Yet as a nation we are walking less and less. Walking can help you to:

  • Improve your general health
  • Get fit and stay fit
  • Control your weight
  • Live longer!

Walking helps protect the body from many illnesses and conditions: heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, obesity, depression, some types of diabetes and colon cancer.

Health experts agree that 30 minutes brisk walking on most days of the week is sufficient to improve fitness. That might seem a lot at first but walking can be incorporated into your everyday life more easily than any other activity.

You don’t need any special gear and you can do it wherever you are. It raises your energy levels, works off calories and doesn’t cost a bean!
