21 Minutes: Reduces the risk of stroke by 43%
30 Minutes: Reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes by 30%




Walk Like a Pro!

1. Gaze 10 to 20 feet in front of you. Not down at your feet.
2. Keep your shoulders rolled back. Relaxed and down, not scrunched up by your ears.
3. Bend your arms 90 degrees, keeping your hands in relaxed fists. Not clenched.
4. Swing your arms back and forth avoid side to side motions.
5. Keep your stomach tight and lean your torso forward slightly about 5 degrees. This will give you killer strong and flat abs.
6. Land on your heel as you swing your leg forward, squeezing through your glutes.
7. Push off with your toes to propel yourself forward into your stride.
8. Take short, quick steps. They allow for a smooth rolling stride. This helps you walk faster and more efficient.
