The Benefits of a Walking Workout As Part of Your Exercise
Regime

miles, will just fly by when you're listening to your favourite music as you stride out.

Walking is suitable for almost everyone - after all, most of us do it every day. It is a
low impact workout which, in comparison with many other forms of exercise, is
virtually injury free. It also has a much lower drop out rate than almost all other
types of exercise - and it can be continued to a greater age.

There are very few health problems associated with walking. Nevertheless, it is still a
physical activity and you do need to apply a little common sense. Build up gradually
at first and set your own goals. Should you feel any discomfort or pain then stop
exercising and make an appointment to see your doctor.

If you are more than 30 lbs overweight, if you haven't exercised for some time, if
you have any cardiovascular problems or if you have high blood pressure then it
would be advisable to get your doctor's opinion and advice before you start any new
fitness program. However, even if you do suffer from any of these symptoms
there's no need to despair. Make sure that you pay close attention to your doctor's
advice, build up gradually to start with and walking will probably have a beneficial
effect on any health problems which you may have.

Walking has many benefits. It can help to lower your blood pressure, reduce the risk
of heart disease and increase the stamina and efficiency of your heart and lungs. You
will feel less tired and be more mentally alert in general. If you walk on a regular basis
you will lose weight and shed inches without ever having to go on the latest fad diet
or to visit the gym. Most important of all, you will feel generally better and, should
you wish, you will be better able to take part in other activities and enjoy life more as
a result of your increased level of fitness.
