Not only is walking a convenient way to lose weight since you don’t need to belong to a gym or invest in special equipment, it’s also an ideal exercise for older adults since it’s gentle on your joints and will help keep your heart and bones strong. A 155-pound person burns 149 calories when walking at a slow pace (3.5 mph) for half an hour, according to Harvard Health Publishing. Increase the pace to 4 mph, and the same person burns 167 calories.

Of course, running burns more calories in the same amount of time, but walking is an approachable, low-impact workout that works for most people. (Bonus points for walking in nature: Spending time in the outdoors has a ton of physical, social and emotional benefits.)


For consistent weight loss, you’ll need to clock in at least 20 minutes of brisk walking most days of the week.

So start walking and be consistent with your walking and you will see results along with eating right. Remember you can’t outwork bad eating habits. Contact me or click on my link www.fitguypersonaltraining.com if you’re ready for a free consultation. Make it a great day!!!
