I’m personally an active person, heading to the gym 5-6 times a week and opting to take the stairs instead on the lift/escalator on most occasions. And so I thought this walk is rather interesting, encouraging people from all walks of life to get together in a non-competitive environment and pretty much be active.
Before the walk started, there were Fitness First instructors around to get all of us moving and into the groove with simple movements. Funny enough, I headed to Fitness First for a kick ass weights session after the walk.
Just look at the number of steps I took on that Saturday alone!
Big smiles all around after completing the walk! I’m really glad this walk was organised, because honestly, how much do we actually know what’s going on in our bodies? Our health is something easily overlooked and despite what most people think, CVD is easily preventable. All we need is the right lifestyle choices and all these little steps amount to a lifesaving difference. And it’s not like we have to dedicate hours of working out to prevent this, all we need is about half an hour of physical activity a day, amounting to 2% of your day.
