Walking for fitness is such a great way to get in your exercise. Depending on the weather, you can walk outdoors around your neighborhood or you can visit your local park to walk through the nature trail.

Well, in Michigan, the weather can be somewhat tricky, especially in the winter. So, I choose to do my walk workouts in the comfort of my own home using my treadmill and/or walk workout DVDs from Leslie Sansone and Jessica Smith.

One good thing that I have found, is when you choose to walk for fitness, you are in control of how fast you move or when it is important for you to slow down and rest. Remember, a consistent, moderate pace offers good cardiovascular benefits, but interval training delivers those gains sooner and in a shorter workout. Also, there is no wrong or right way to do a walk workout, just get up and start walking for fitness!

Here are some additional health benefits when walking for fitness:

• Boosting your spirits and creativity
• Helping to clear your mind
• Protecting you from heart disease
• Lowering the rate of weight gain
• Strengthening your memory
• Decreasing your risk from some cancers

Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s start WALKING for better health and fitness!
