Walking is a complete, simple and effective sport but your feet, which are needed for walking, are complex. Made up of 26 bones, many joints and several ligaments, our feet are what enable our bodies to walk.

In this video, Newfeel and Dr. Patrick Bacquaert, Chief Doctor at the IRBMS (Institute for Well-Being, Medicine and Sports Health Research) explain how our feet work.

So in order to allow good heel to toe transition from the heel strike to the toe push off and fully enjoy all of the benefits of fitness walking you have to look after your feet!

Fitness walking, whether it is fast or Nordic walking, is an excellent sports activity for losing weight that is often practised for improving the figure. It's true that this endurance sport is a way of gently recovering or maintaining one's ideal weight. However we do not all shed weight in the same way, let alone at the same speed! These 3 factors have a direct influence on the number of calories expended during each of your fitness walking sessions.
