Studies show that walking can

  • Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reduce high cholesterol and improve blood lipid profile
  • Reduce body fat
  • Enhance mental well being
  • Reduce depression
  • Reduce hypertension
  • Increase bone density, hence helping to prevent osteoporosis
  • Reduce the risk of colon cancer
  • Reduce the risk of non insulin dependant diabetes
  • Help control body weight
  • Help osteoarthritis
  • Help flexibility and co-ordination, hence reducing the risk of falls

Even 10-minute rapid and energetic walks can dramatically increase a personís physical condition. One study at the Loughbrough University found that women walking continuously for 30 minutes 5 days a week had almost identical increases in fitness as women who split their 30 minutes into three 10-minute walks (Murphy & Hardman 1998). Perhaps even more encouraging was that the short walkers lost more weight and reported greater decreases in waist area than the long walkers.
