Exercise of the Month – Walking

Purpose:
Improve overall health, maintaining fitness, and helps prevent cardiovascular disease.

Benefit:
Weight management, increased energy level, reduced blood pressure and cholesterol.

Cardiovascular Activity Suggestions:

The aim of aerobic exercise is to increase your heart rate to the training range as recommended by your healthcare provider. 3 separate 10-minute aerobic sessions seem to be as effective in improving fitness and health risk profiles as a single 30-minute session

The treadmill is a great platform for increasing intensity, keeping a steady pace and tracking distance. Wear walking or running shoes and get moving. Keep your head up, swing your arms, walk heel to toe and keep a steady pace. If possible, walk briskly and above all do what you can do.

Sunflower Wellness presents this exercise with the assistance of WebExercises. A library of exercises of the month is available at Sunflowerwellness.org.
