Fitness Tip: Don’t underestimate the power of walking
July 24, 2015
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says that walking is an important and easy way to boost your health.
CDC recommends that adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity, or an equivalent combination each week, according to the CDC website.
The guidelines also recommend that children and adolescents be active for at least 60 minutes every day. Following these guidelines can contribute to overall health, and decrease the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes.
Walking is a great way to get the physical activity needed to obtain health benefits. Walking does not require any special skills. It also does not require a gym membership or expensive equipment.
Why not! Add walking as part of your daily routine.
