Hate the gym? Good news – walking is great cardio exercise, if you go at a pace of at least 3 miles per hour.
People often do consider walking more of a recreational activity than a sport, believing it less beneficial to your health compared to “real exercise.” What these people seem to forget is that exercise isn’t measured solely in sweat.
Regular brisk walking can help you maintain a healthy weight, prevent or manage various conditions including heart disease, strengthen your bones and muscles and improve your mood.
Besides a good pair of shoes, it won’t cost you a thing.
