What if we told you that there was a beneficial exercise that you could do anywhere, and you don't need anything more expensive than a comfy pair of shoes?

There is...take a walk!

Walking is often overlooked or downplayed because it is something we do every day, but it offers many physical and digestive benefits.

Here are just a few:

  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Stimulates your digestive track
  • Improves your mood
  • Easier on joints than some other exercise
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Can be done anytime and anywhere

Weave walking into your day!

  • Have a walking meeting! If you have a remote meeting that is mostly listening, grab some headphones and your sneakers.
  • Walk the second half of lunch! Even if you can only fit in 10 minutes that is still awesome.
  • Set an alarm! If you have a desk job set a reminder to walk for 5 minutes every hour. By the end of the workday, you would have walked for over half an hour.

Walking workouts

Endurance: If your goal is to train your body for longer workouts, start with 20 minutes and lengthen your walk by 5 minutes for each workout.

Intensity: If your goal is to improve how fast you can walk and how quickly you can recover, try interval training.

Alternate between 1 minute of speed walking and 1 minute of moderate walking for 20 minutes. As you feel more comfortable, start to lengthen your speed walk interval by 30 seconds.

It is important to note that maintaining a heart rate below 120 beats per minute (bpm) optimizes fat burning while surpassing this threshold pushes you into the cardiovascular zone.
