Walking works — in a lot of ways. A brisk-paced walk can help you and your family look and feel better, increase energy and pick up your spirits.
Walking can work to improve your health, too. A regular routine of brisk-paced walking daily can help you lose weight, lower cholesterol, strengthen your heart and reduce the likelihood of serious health problems down the road. And with America spending more than ever on preventable health problems like heart disease, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes and conditions associated with obesity, such as arthritis, every step counts.
The WalkingWorks campaign is designed for use by everyone, but a special program is available for employers to start a walking program for their employees.
