No matter where you live, what your schedule or what your age is, walking is a fitness exercise that should be on top of your list.

Walking also is considered low impact, meaning that this type of exercise has a very low risk of causing injury to your body. If you are looking for an easy exercise to participate in, that has a small risk of injury and delivers benefits, you can’t do much better than walking. Walking is also fantastic at burning calories. For a moderate walk of 3 mph, you can lose from 250 to 300 calories. This is about the same calorie burn rate as lifting weights. Walking is also fun, you can listen to your favorite music on your iPod, or walk with your friends or family and have an interesting conversation.

It’s good to walk at least three times a week for about a half an hour. If there aren’t sidewalks in your neighborhood or the weather is not good, look into purchasing a treadmill, where you can walk at anytime in the comfort of your own home.
