According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking for as little as 30 minutes a day can have the following health benefits:

  •  Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease
  • Improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Maintain body weight and lower the risk of obesity
  • Enhance mental well-being
  • Improve blood lipid profile
  • Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer
  • Reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes

Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. In addition it's extremely worthwhile - research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! Learn more about the national "Walk With A Doc" program here »
