Kick Start To New Year Fitness

Kick start to New Year Fitness , I know it's the old adage but you've got to start somewhere !
And there is no better start than walking and you don't need any special equipment to get you going ,well it until you decide to go over hill and dale .

To get the maximum health benefits from walking you need to do about 10,000 steps a day as your target. Making small changes will have a culminate  effect taking the stairs instead if the lift , my husband does this ( as his work lift is always breaking down!) and where possibke walking to walk.

Set yourself a goal to move every 30 minutes honestly if you out your mind to it ,this can work as it only takes 3 weeks to form a habit. You can keep track of your progress with a pedometer ( this vary in price) or you can download a pedometer app these range from paying for or free .

If you need inspiration about where to walk there are plenty of sites like Geocaching which encompass history and excercise (some are free and some you have to pay for. )

For general walking there are plenty of sites that allow you to plan routes , print out guides and find walking groups. And with skies like this why wouldn't you want to get out of there?
