Walk or Run?

Quick question—what’s healthier, walking or running? Well it turns out each activity has its own benefits.

A study compared the two and found that walkers’ steps aren’t in vain. Walking can be as beneficial as running when it comes to reducing risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and poor cholesterol level. In fact, it may actually be better.

However; running…well…runs away with providing weight loss and a trimmer waistline over time.

If you’re new to exercise, you can ease into running by walking first. That’s often safer and easier on your body. Either way, don’t get caught up in the details and debate. Just pick one.

Both are better for you than sitting.
