Walking for Fitness: Easy Workouts for All Ages

Start Slowly

If you're new to walking, start slowly and gain speed and distance. Walk 30 minutes daily.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Avoid pain and injury by wearing supportive, comfy shoes.

Find a Good Walking Route

To enjoy your walks, choose picturesque routes or parks. Track your steps and progress with a pedometer or fitness tracker.

Walk Daily

Don't drive—walk to work, school, or the store. Take the stairs. Over time, these little modifications may improve health.

Stretch Before and After Walking

Prevent injury by stretching before and after walking. Stretch again after walking to enhance flexibility and minimize muscular pain.


Walk with a Buddy

Walking with a friend or family member may make it more fun and inspire you.

Mix it Up

Change your route, walk uphill or on rough terrain, or add periods of quicker walking or running to your walks

Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your walk to stay hydrated.
