Walking

Walking is simple, free, and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.  See our Walk – it’s free page.

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. A brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of weekly exercise.
