Do you exercise? Do you like gyms? We seem to hear all the time that people are always trying to get fit, and lose weight by doing all kind of exercises.
Walking has been shown to have many of the health benefits, Pasquale “Pat” Brocco. TA, 31-year-old, weighed 605 pounds three years ago and this is why he decided to start walking to jumpstart his weight loss. He made a pact with himself to walk the mile to and from his local Walmart every time he wanted to snack.
“You walk to Walmart three times a day, and you end up walking six miles, It’s amazing because I never walked six miles in my life, and I was doing it every day.”
The walking turned into eating healthier and weightlifting at the gym. Now, he weighs under 300 pounds.
I’m not suggesting that one should stop doing it, in fact we should make walking part of our daily lives, as it reduces risk of hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes.
So lace up those walking shoes and get outside for a walk around the block, or two. Your body will thank you.
