WALKING GROUP

I have been considering setting up this walking group for some time, but over the last few weeks I have had quite a few people asking me if we could run one, so here it is.

 

walking groupOnce a month on a Sunday morning a small group of us will get together to walk between 1 1/2 - 2 hours. 

 

At the moment no one knows each other so we will all be in the same boat, but please feel free to bring a friend or a family member.

 

The routes will be within the Calderdale area and will be a mixture of different terrains.

Walking is low impact, fun, free and good for your health.  

Did you know that walking can have massive benefits for your health?

 

As well as being a great way to see the countryside and get out in the fresh air, walking can help to: increase your fitness, stamina, confidence and well being, reduce the risk of heart disease, control body weight, strengthen bones, reduce high blood pressure and reduce stress and anxiety.

    

Any walking is better than none but, to make sure you are getting maximum health benefits, a brisk walk is better than a stroll and you should work towards w alking for 30 minutes on most days of the week at a pace that makes you warm and your breathing slightly more heavy than normal.

 

So, stride out and improve your health but make sure you don’t over do it – you should still be able to talk when walking!

  

The potential benefits of walking far outweigh the risks but if you haven’t participated in much exercise recently and are worried about your health, please make sure you check with your doctor before increasing your activity levels.
