Welcome to the Bellaonline Walking Newsletter!

"Walking is the nearest activity to perfect exercise".

Remember to always buy your shoes in the afternoon as all our feet swell slightly during the day. Walking shoes are the ONE thing you want to be comfortable so take your time and don’t be persuaded by the latest fashion trends.
Go for comfort and stability every time!

It is simple to follow and progresses in easy stages.
You are in charge of your body so give it a treat -start walking and reap the health benefits.
Not sure where to walk. If you suffer from hay fever then walk inside on a treadmill . They often have different programmes which you can set to include a slight gradient when you are ready for a more challenging walk.
Walk outside in the parks – these are good because they usually have well maintained level paths or join a local walking group.
