Walking as Exercise

If you’re finding it difficult to get active, walking is a really great way to get started!

One of the best things about walking is how easy it is to get into - it’s doesn’t require any equipment, it’s good for your health, and it lets you explore your local area and meet new people.

Lots of people are put off exercise because they don’t think they’re fit enough to take part, but walking is a low impact exercise accessible to almost everyone. Starting with small local walks and building up over time, walking can really help get people into more active lifestyles. Walking is really easy to fit into day to day life, whether by exchanging a car, bus or tube journey for walking, going for a stroll at lunchtimes, or joining one of our social walks. If you'd like to get more out of your walks, take a look at our Nordic Walking courses to help you burn even more calories!
