The n° 1 beauty gripe amongst women, cellulite often prevents women from feeling good about their bodies. This residual fatty layer which tends to develop at the top of the thighs needn't be permanent and can be combatted in a very natural way. Find out how active walking can help you to tone your body thanks to its anti-cellulite effects.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a fatty layer which tends to collect at the top of the thighs and can be unsightly in certain areas of the leg: it is the famous "orange peel" effect.

Several factors are responsible for its formation, including:

-        poor blood circulation;

-        lack of muscle tone;

-        excess weight;

-        genetics or hormonal imbalances.

Guess the common denominator for the first 3 elements: sedentary lifestyle. So, to counteract cellulite, move more!

Take up a sport gently by practising an easy, comprehensive and endurance-based physical activity. Active walking has all of these advantages! 

How does active walking combat cellulite? 

Counteractingcellulite first requires improved blood circulation.

To improve circulation, it's a good idea to practice a dynamic sport such as active walking. Sports such as running or static sports require intense effort over short periods and therefore have less effect on venous circulation.

Another advantage of active walking: it simultaneously works all the muscles of your body. You will burns calories and thus limit the storage of fat around the muscles of your legs and thighs. Your legs and thighs will become more slender as you progress. 

"This is a reality" ensures Dr Bacquaert, sports medicine and health consultant , "active walking fights cellulite because practising this sport has a positive effect on blood circulation, whilst also providing excellent exercise and toning our muscles!"

Your anti-cellulite strategy before and after active walking

To maximise your anti-cellulite campaign, adopt a healthy diet which reduces the production and storage of fat.

Practise active walking regularly with sessions of over 30 minutes. After this length of time, you will enter into an endurance phase: your body will start to draw on its reserves of fat. Your muscles will lengthen and become more firm and the zones of cellulite will reduce.

To stay motivated in the long term, plan walking session among friends. You will all benefit from a moment of relaxation with bonus health benefits.
