Easier than aerobics, swimming or jogging, walking is the easiest and the most effective way to lose weight and become fit. The almost 'forgotten art' walking is fast becoming the exercise of the times — and just about anyone can do it, young or old.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 'A walker loses weight, lowers cholesterol, reduces conditions associated with hypertension, slows the ageing process; increases strength, flexibility and balance, strengthens bones and increases stamina'.
The message is simple: walking is the easiest, cheapest and most accessible way to get fit and stay fit for life. There is nothing difficult or faddish about walking. It is scientific and it works. It keeps you slim and healthy — and it's fun.
