Walking is a healthy, safe, and low impact exercise that is energizing, burns calories, promotes weight loss, improves cardio vascular fitness, generates a positive attitude, and may help relieve stress.
According to the Fitness Walking Guide, walking is just as effective as other forms of cardio and the best pace to aim for a thorough fitness walk is around four miles per hour or close to a 15 minute mile.
Listening to music while you walk or work out is a great way to stay motivated, take your mind off the challenge, and add some bounce to your step.
