Summer's here and the days are long. It's now, that we can squeeze that extra half hour of activity into our day. The time of year when, (if the rain stays away) we're happy to get out into the fresh air. So bring out the BBQ and your walking shoes ...
Research has shown that if we walk for 15 minutes twice a day, most of us can lose 16lb of fat in a year.
Brisk walking works off almost as many calories as jogging (up to 350 calories per hour) but puts one-sixth of the stress on the joints.
Walking tones and strengthens muscles (particularly bottom and thighs), builds stamina and loosens back and shoulder muscles.
Frequent brisk walking can help prevent heart disease and control blood pressure as well as being a great stress reducer and getting you out into the fresh air.
And it doesn’t cost anything!
