1. Walking is not Limiting  

It is free and simple.  You can go alone or with friends, and get fresh air at the same time. 

2. Get on your Feet

We tend to become more and more sedentary, whether watching TV, eating meals, looking at the computer, or riding in your car. This can take a toll on your health. Just 30 minutes of walking each day will improve your health.

3. Improved Balance  

Walking is the easiest way to strengthen muscles in your legs, back, and abdomen, all which keep you steady.

4. Keeps you Independent

Walking will help you stay in shape, so you have an easier time doing daily tasks. It gives you a sense of independence.

5. Makes you Happy 🙂 

Walk with a friend! This activity encourages being social and reaching out to others.


Along with all of these benefits, there are many others. Walking eases joint pain, boosts immune function, benefits memory, and helps you sleep.   Cornerstone Homes Fitness Center
