All of our weight-loss programs involve walking. We also stress flexibility, balance, cardio, and strength training for people who are able to without any medical contraindications.
Our bodies were designed to walk long distances. When we walk outdoors, we can stay in-touch with nature and the world around us that exists off of television and computer screens.
We feel better when air is moving through our lungs and blood is flowing throughout our bodies. Walking helps with balance and coordination. It also helps keep our leg muscles toned and shapely. Walking is also great for core and body stabilization which can prevent falls and accidents.
