If you’re looking for a New Year’s resolution, try this one: walk more! Walking is a great, inexpensive and easy way to build the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. More importantly, almost anyone can walk… all the fitness equipment that you need is right below your waist. At Tennessee Fitness Spa, we start every day by walking because, more than anything, we believe that it helps people develop healthy habits. It shows our guests that they don’t need expensive treadmills, complicated bicycles or heavy dumbbells to start losing weight: they just need their feet and a surface to move on. In this post, we’re going to look at a few of the long-term benefits of taking regular walks.

It helps to reduce fat

While it’s certainly not going to turn you into a muscular action hero, walking is a healthier alternative to vegging out on the couch and binging reruns of The Office. Affording you time to stop, think and reflect, it can also help your brain cool down after a long day.

It can help you live longer

At a swift pace, walking has been observed to be linked to predicted mortality risk, which is to say… those who walk faster, die less. While this wasn’t a rigorous scientific study and was, instead, a casual observation made by a team of scientists, the takeaway is pretty clear: walking can contribute to a longer life.

It lowers stress levels

In a natural setting, such as the one offered at Tennessee Fitness Spa, walking is an amazing way to get away from the stresses of modern life. Free from the concerns of cell phones, business meetings and bills, you’re free to experience all of the natural beauty that the world has to offer.

At Tennessee Fitness Spa, we start every morning with a brisk, sixty-minute walk. Helping the guests at our fitness camp for adults develop long-term strategies for losing weight, we believe that walking is a key component in living a happier, healthier life.
