Walking Groups: Easy Steps to Better Health

Exercise doesn’t have to be complicated. Even simple walks with friends may improve your health.

A recent study found that adults who joined outdoor walking groups had improved overall health. These patients had better heart health and were less likely to be depressed than those who didn’t exercise regularly.

“I believe that activity is extremely beneficial to anybody,” said fitness expert Jim Crowell, of OPEX Fitness in Scottsdale, AZ, in an interview with dailyRx News. “Everybody sits on a different part of the ‘health spectrum,’ so there isn’t a one size fits all level of activity that is most beneficial to an individual. But, in general, taking somebody who was previously sedentary and adding in walking (if their body is able) to their daily activities can show great health benefits.”
