steve reeves powerwalkingWalking Weight Loss, or “powerwalking”, is one of the easiest (and cheapest) means of exercise that is guaranteed to improve your health.

Walking weight loss is something you can do almost anywhere and at any time. All you need is a pair of shoes with sturdy heel support.

Walking will also give you more energy, make you feel good, help you to relax, reduce stress, help you sleep better, tone your muscles, help control your appetite, and increase the number of calories your body uses.

  • Has your doctor ever told you that you have heart trouble?
  • When you are physically active, do you have pains in your chest or on your left side (neck, shoulder, or arm)?
  • Do you often feel faint or have dizzy spells?
  • Do you feel extremely breathless after you have been physically active?
  • Has your doctor told you that you have high blood pressure?
  • Has your doctor told you that you have bone or joint problems, like arthritis, that could get worse if you are physically active?
  • Are you over 50 years old and not used to a lot of physical activity?
  • (If you answer yes to any of these questions, walking could be for you.)

Walking right is very important—
1. Walk with your head up, your shoulders back, and your stomach in.
2. Your heel should touch the ground first, then roll your weight forward onto the ball and push off.
3. Stre-e-tch your legs and point your toes forward.
4. Swing your arms as you walk.
5. SMILE (Your odometer is running backwards)!
