Ready, Set, Walk!

Even if you’re a certified couch potato, getting active doesn’t have to be hard. It can also help you outwit heart disease, the No. 1 killer of all Americans. Cycling, jogging, swimming, skiing, aerobic dancing and dozens of other activities can help your heart. But walking is an easy way to get started! The American Heart Association recommends a total of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week.

That’s not as hard as it may sound. Start slowly. Gradually build up, with the goal of being active on most or all days of the week.

Step your way to success

If you’ve been sedentary for a long time, are overweight, have a high risk of heart disease or another chronic health problem, talk to your doctor before you start a walking program.
