How To Start A Walking Program To Get Fit And Lose Weight

Walking is a great way to get fit and lose weight! It costs very little money and you can walk just about anywhere. Most people have a nearby park to walk in.

If you're walking for weight loss you can burn about 130 calories in just 30 minutes - the exact amount depends on your weight. 

Walking protects against diseases, improves your cardiovascular health and gives you stronger bones and muscles. It's also great for mental health and energy levels.

You need comfortable walking shoes or trainers plus non-restrictive clothing. And that's all!

When It's Hot Take Water With You

On a hot day or for a longer walk take some water with you. Drink to thirst.

Plan Your Walks

Following a walking schedule will keep you motivated. You can vary the length of your walks, your walking speed and the location.

Warming up is important and don't set off too fast. You can always speed up later. Start off too fast and you'll struggle to keep the pace up.
