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.

Indeed, whatever your personal reasons are for donning a pair of sneakers, adding music to your stride is simple because of all the latest gadgets and technology.

Here are twenty awesome international tunes from the 1970s and from the latest releases to add to your playlists, help you stay active outdoors, and put that groove into your next walk.
