- Cover of Walking for Fitness
Right after napping, my favorite exercise would have to be walking. It’s easy, it’s free, you don’t need any special equipment to do it, and almost everyone can walk.
Walking for Fitness shares ideas on getting started with a walking routine, teaches you that technique does count and speed does matter. You can walk for weight loss and you can even learn to use a pedometer (it’s easy, I promise)!
Even the CDC has a healthy weight loss plan that involves starting a walking plan. I was particularly encouraged by this website as the pictures they use of those beginning the program aren’t of Olympic walkers, they’re of REAL people!
If you’re in a place where walking outside isn’t the safest, what about starting a Treadmill Walking program? I have access to a gym and plan on using this when a) the weather gets bad and b) when my foot allows me to be really active again.
