Fitness Walking

By: Beatrice Stephenson

Many people prefer fitness walking before going to the gym or doing work out classes. But is it really an effective way to get fit and lose weight or even cellulite? Could it be as good as going to the gym?

Well, the simple answer is; yes it can. If you walk 30 extra minutes a day you would loose 17 pounds in a year, without changing your eating habits! So there's a lot you can do with small steps, so to speak. If you aim for 10 000 steps a day, you will lose much more than that. Add eating a bit healthier and results will be even better. So how to counts steps then? To get a pedometer (a step counter) is the easiest way. They don't cost a lot and are a lot of fun to use. You will start to enjoy counting steps and competing with yourself a bit every day. And the results won't be far away. There are many way to simply increase your steps every day, and you will get more and more inventive as time goes by. Get off the bus one step earlier, walk one way to work. Do a short walk in the morning and a short one in the evening. I promise, once you start with the step counter you will love it and be inspired.

You can of course put in an hour every morning or night and do it all at once, but the fact is, you don't have to do it as a work out pass, you can fit some walking in here and there during the day, and you will have the same results. Or walk two or three times a week for one hour, and fit small walks in for the rest of the week. As you can see there are many ways of doing it, and they will all give you results.

Just start!
