FITNESS AT FOCUS LADIES-Thursday, March 22nd

The Power of Walking! 

Today we discussed the importance of walking and how it is an excellent form of physical activity. 
Below are two articles that emphasize the benefits walking can do for your health.

Blog Assignment

1. Based on what we read and the class discussion, name at least three benefits to walking/aerobic exercise.

2. Please DESCRIBE (more than 2 sentences) how you can incorporate more walking into your daily/weekly routine. Is this something you really plan on doing or do you see yourself doing other physical activities instead? Tell us what you plan on doing! It takes a plan to make the action!

Example: I can walk as I am talking on the phone for 20-30 minutes.
I can take my dog for a walk around the block a few times.
