Benefits of Walking Training (adapted from the Mayo Clinic):
Physical activity doesn't need to be complicated. Something as simple as a daily brisk walk can help you live a healthier live. A few benefits from walking include: Maintaining a healthy weight, prevention or management of various conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes, helping strengthen bones and muscles, improving your mood, and improving your balance and coordination.
The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits. We want to empower you to become a regular walker and establish a regular routine to help you continue with the activity and new healthy behaviors.
