Walking - Why is it good for me?

A brisk ten minute walk can make a huge difference to your health – it gets the heart pumping faster, can make you feel better, more energetic and improve your mood. Over time, brisk walking can help to lower the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

How much does it cost?

Nothing! Walking is free and can even save you money on travel costs.

What equipment do I need?

The good news is you don't have to wear sports kit or start an expensive fitness programme!

But you can download the free Active 10 App from One You, which shows how much brisk walking you're doing, where you can increase your pace and fit more into your day.

If choosing to walk, or take part in any other physical activity outdoors, it is essential to observe current government guidance on social distancing.
