Taking a frequent walk is one of the most effective ways of improving your health.
Just 30 minutes of brisk walking a day can improve your physical health, increase your fitness and help manage your weight by burning off those excess calories. .
If 30 minutes exercise at one time is inconvenient, shorter bouts of 10-15 minutes exercise spread over the day can be just as good.
Walking is the ideal exercise to build into your daily routine and is easy to do. You could leave the car behind for a short journey or think about getting off the bus one or two stops earlier and walking to work or school.
Walk 4 Life
Find new routes, upload your own routes and record your progress on the Walk 4 Life website (external link). You can also use the website to find out about your local walking groups and take a charity challenge.
Join one of our regular local led walks. Walking as a group can be beneficial and more encouraging, giving you an opportunity to meet and chat with other people while you get fitter. These walks are led by trained leaders - you can find out more about walks and other ways you can keep healthy on our Active for Life page.
Walking for 20 minutes will use approximately 100 calories for someone weighing 62kg (9st 11lbs). And walking a mile in 20 minutes burns approximately the same amount of energy as:
- Running a mile in 10 minutes
- Swimming breast stoke for 10 minutes
- Doing aerobics for 16 minutes
- Playing football for 12 minutes
- Cycling for 16 minutes
- Weight training for 17 minutes…and walking is considerably easier to achieve
Walking is virtually injury-free and has the lowest drop-out rate of any form of exercise, making it a highly effective work-out.
