There are so many benefits that walking offers, especially at the moment with the risk of COVID so we thought we would add a little competitiveness to encourage you along..... 😀
Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.
Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier. You don’t have to walk for hours either, a brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of weekly exercise.
To gain the most from your walk, you should be aiming to maintain a pace which allows you to hold a conversation but a bit too quick to allow you to sing. Next time you’re out walking somewhere, give it a try - belt out a couple of verses of your favourite song and see if you are gasping for air between each line. You may think you look a bit crazy, but don’t worry - it’s all in the name of fitness so it’s fine 👍
