Small steps can make a huge difference

You know you want to begin a walking fitness program, but don't know where to start? It's easy! Walking is one of the easiest and most profitable forms of exercise. All you need is a good pair of shoes, comfortable clothing, and the will and desire to succeed.

Start by making small but important changes to your daily routine such as:

  • Walking to work
  • Walk to the shops
  • Periodically swap the school car run for a walk, or park further away from the school
  • If you have to use a car, park it at the far end of the car park at work and the shops
  • Walk between meetings
  • Get off one tube or bus stop earlier than normal
  • Get up to change channel
  • Walk up escalators
  • Walk up stairs, don’t take lifts
  • Walk the dog

Shoes and socks are so important

At our surgeries we have foot wear consultants that can fit you out with the right shoe for you as well as a thorough foot wear assessment and foot scan that can give you further information about your feet.

You may require insoles or orthotics.
