Spring Time – Get Moving Outside !

It is Spring time -- time to get moving OUTDOORS. 

Walking outdoors has so many advantages over walking on a treadmill.     It challenges your core, your balance and stability.   There are many things that you must navigate (obstacles, starts and stops).    There are curbs, sloped sidewalks and roadsides, uphills and downhills.    Going downhill challenges muscles in a completely different way.  

Do not just walk – Power Walk.    You will burn more calories and speed up your metabolism.   Power walking, unlike regular walking, requires good posture, your head up, shoulders back and keeping your core tight.  Walk fast with “power,” not leisurely.  

Get outside and on your way to Spring FITNESS …….. 

Stay tuned……….
