You Can Walk to Fitness by Rachel Armstrong
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Whether you call it power walking, fitness walking or just plain walking, indoors or out, walking is one of the most popular and rewarding forms of exercise. The appeal is that absolutely anyone can do it - young or old, fit or unfit. Take a look in a local park - from London to New York - and you will see walkers, early in the morning, at lunchtime, on the way home, making the most of their surroundings and getting some exercise at the same time. There are so many health benefits to walking - including reducing the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke, lowering blood pressure, reducing body fat, increasing bone density and enhancing mental wellbeing.This book contains all the information that someone will need to take up walking as a form of exercise. It includes the correct equipment and clothing, health benefits (mental and physical), warm-up and cool-down routines, strength training, how to walk correctly, walking programmes, weight-training routines and stretches, using a treadmill and using a pedometer.
