Did You Know....

... That the average person walks over 80,000 miles during their lifetime? That is more than three times around the Equator!!!

Walking is a gentle, low-impact form of exercise which is suitable for people from all walks (pun intended) of life.

According to the Stroke Association, having strolls daily for 90 minutes can help prevent and control high-blood pressure which causes strokes. (Taken from HERE) Also click HERE to read more.

Just by having a half-hour walk a day can reduce stress, improve concentration and boost fitness.

  1. I love to walk. When I've had bouts of fatigue it's often the only thing I can do for exercise. I'd like to get one of those pedometer things that count your steps. The goal is to walk something like 10,000 steps a day.
