Walking is one of the best ways to stay fit and keep the pounds off - and a great way to see the countryside too! Follow our walking plans to tone up, our walking guide for weight loss and easy steps to rev up your walking routine.
A 30-minute fast-pace walk once a day will burn around 150 calories and help tone up muscles in the buttocks, thighs, hips, shoulders, upper back and abdominals. If you really want to take your fitness and health to another level, measure yourself against fitness walkers who average 12 to 15 minutes per mile. But most of all, enjoy it!
