Active walking, the ideal activity for taking up sport again
For getting back into outdoor sports, fitness walking has a number of benefits. It is accessible to people of all levels of fitness and requires limited equipment, just a suitable pair of shoes to start. You can walk whenever and wherever you want and pace yourself according to how you feel and the goals you want to achieve.
You can achieve all this without any risk to your health as Dr Bacquaert, a sports and sports health consultant, points out. "During fitness walking, the strain placed on the joints is relatively weak when propelling the body forwards, because when we walk, there is always one foot on the ground!"
