Someone once said: "Walking is easy. As long as the same leg isn't used twice in succession, nothing much can go wrong."
They were right on that one! Walking is a gentle activity - set your own pace, and you can walk comfortably with little risk of injury. It's a great activity for people of all ages and abilities!
It's so accessible, too. With a good pair of shoes and clothing to suit the weather, you can head out the door.
Walking is pleasurable, relaxing, and good for you, too! Regular walking will strengthen your heart and lungs, improve circulation, assist with weight control, tone your muscles, and keep your bones strong. Get into the habit of walking and you'll soon look better, feel better, and feel better about yourself.
