Is Walking Enough?


When I ask my patients or clients at Fitness Élixir do they exercise? I usually hear the answer,”We walk. That’s it.😊”
Activities like walking🚶, gardening🌷🌿, cleaning house🏡 are called as Exercise lite. Exercise lite has given many people a false sense that a stroll through the neighborhood is all you need to stay healthy. Instead of pushing people to be more active, it’s given them an excuse to do as little as possible.
🚶🚶🚶Does our kind of walking-
❌improve endurance?
❌reduce the risk of heart disease?
❌help in weight loss?
❌improve muscle strength?
NO⁉️ Then why do it❓
✅THE TRUTH? The more exercise you do, & the more vigorous it is, the more you benefit.👌
If walking is your choice of exercise, a brisk walk🏃🏃🏃🏃 is the way to walk. It’s how you’d walk if you were hurrying to catch a bus/train🚇 or to get in from the rain☔️. It’s walking fast enough so that you begin to feel winded.😅💦
If you’re a lounge lizard whose idea of exercise is picking up the remote control, then walking a little every day will make you healthier & increase your odds of living a long life. But don’t think you can shuffle along & call it exercise. Get walking the right way!👉🏃🏃
