Walking

Why Walk?

  • NHS professionals recommend that adults should spend 150 minutes a week being physically active. 
  • Improve your health and well-being by walking at a fast pace for just 30 minutes over 5 days (meeting the NHS guidelines).
  • People of all sizes can experience substantial health benefits from walking at a brisk pace every day (Cambridge University, 2015).
  • Walking can help build stamina, burn calories and give you a healthier heart (NHS, 2016).
