The Best Exercise for Losing Weight

 

I get asked all the time, “what is the best exercise for losing weight?”

  • Running?
  • Cycling?
  • Lifting weights?
  • Circuit training?
  • Cross Fit?

Look down, there is your answer….WALKING!

Walking is the most effective way for shedding pounds & improving your health & fitness. And here is why:

  1. You don’t need to be fit to start.
  2. It’s completely free.
  3. You don’t need to join a gym.
  4. It can be done anytime & anywhere.
  5. Walking is low impact on the joints.
  6. Improves your mindset & self-esteem.
  7. Boosts your overall energy levels.
  8. Walking in the sun can naturally top up your vitamin D levels.
  9. Enhances your recovery between workouts.
  10. Easy & effective way to burn calories.

Whether you are a complete beginner or a regular gym goer, walking & it’s countless benefits can help you live more active & healthy life.

I recommend walking for 30 minutes a day most days, with the goal of walking between 8000-10000 steps per day. This can be done in one outing or can be split into 2×15 or 3×10 minute blocks throughout the day. In the morning before work, during your lunch break & after dinner in the evening. Find a way that fits into your lifestyle.
