Walking Toward a Healthier You

There are countless physical activities out there, but walking has the lowest dropout rate of them all! It's the simplest positive change you can make to effectively improve your heart health. Research has shown that the benefits of walking and moderate physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day can help you:

  • Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease 
  • Improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels 
  • Improve blood lipid profile 
  • Maintain body weight and lower the risk of obesity 
  • Enhance mental well being 
  • Reduce the risk of osteoporosis 
  • Reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer 
  • Reduce the risk of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes ( Source AHA, 2014)

Walk Your way to a healthier life in which you feel better and have more energy. Now is a great time to start moving.
