Is it possible to take my child fitness walking with me?
It is recommended that children do 1 hour of "moderate to intense" exercise per day.
Fitness walking is perfect for incorporating these changes in rhythm: simply walk faster! You can therefore initiate your child to fitness walking, by teaching them to pay attention to their breathing, feel how their arms contribute to the walk, or try the correct foot movement, unrolling the feet out fully on the ground at each step.
Be patient: Your young walker's enthusiasm will depend on their level of energy, their mood, their temperament and even on the weather. Always listen to them: these family outings should remain a pleasure!
By walking side by side, you will introduce your child to the pleasures of outdoor sport and get them used to walking as a form of transport. You will also help them maintain their health and well-being each day!
