The best exercise you can do. Walking is a fantastic aid to any exercise regime, as you can do it anywhere, combine it with other activities, do it inside or out, on your own or in company, and you can really build your walking effort over time.

Walking helps with:

Well, just about everything! Stamina, obviously. Plus, lower body muscles, and also posture.

How to use walking in your exercise regime:

  • Think about number of steps, and try and build these on an average daily basis. For example, start with an average of 2,000 steps per day and build this up.
  • Think about learning ‘speed walking’ and again set targets and build.
  • Think about hills and walking up stairs, anything that raises the bar in terms of the difficulty.
  • Be ware of the need for walking correctly and using the right footwear.
