Why Walk?

Staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can understandably seem insurmountable in today’s overwhelming environment. However, you don’t need to commit to an intimidating and demanding gym routine to live a hearty life. Sometimes all a person needs is a low impact activity to get the blood pumping and work out their body. Walking is known as weight-bearing exercise, because you carry your own body weight, and nothing else. A 2007 study of women found that a low level of exercise (around 75 minutes per week) improved their fitness levels significantly, when compared to a non-exercising group. Walking is a fantastic method of exercise, to reap similar results.

However, for people looking to start walking for medical reasons, supervised walking programs may be more attractive. If you’re concerned about getting injured or require help to start walking, perhaps starting on a treadmill would be safer. Many PAD patients go through supervised treadmill therapy, to receive a comforting and slower pace of exercise.
