Stay In Shape By Walking With Friends

By AFM Staff – March 1, 2015

Now there’s even more reason to grab some friends and get outside for a walk. According to research from the University of East Anglia in the UK, people who regularly walk in groups have lower blood pressure, resting heart rate, and reduced total cholesterol levels than people who walk alone. Working out in a group was noted to lead to a reduction in body fat and Body Mass Index. The study showed that group walking encouraged walkers to not only stick to their regular workout regime, but to also maintain a positive attitude toward physical activities. bmj.co/1A9qDrb
