Put your best foot forward for fitness
If I told you there was a safe, easy and cheap way to lose weight and stay healthy that suits just about everyone you’d be interested right? Well, there is – and you can start this great workout right now by getting up from your desk, sofa or chair and going for a walk.

Yep, walking could just be the new cardio – with recent research suggesting walking might be just as good as gentle jogging – and potentially better for you than long-term strenuous endurance exercise. With national guidelines recommending 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity each week, walking is easy to start and even easier to incorporate it into daily life. 

But why is walking so good for you?
