Brainerd, MN (PRWEB) December 2, 2006
Adventure Creative Group today announced the launch of Walking365.com, a new website dedicated to exercise walkers of all abilities. The website provides detailed information on all aspects of walking for exercise, including warm and cold weather walking, fitness walking, walking injuries and walking gear.
"The goal of this health-related project is to raise public awareness about the benefits of walking," says Jesse Bradley, editor of the site. "Walking is one of the best fitness activities for people of all ages due to its relatively low physical risks and enormous long-term health benefits."
The site explains the many ways walking can be a major benefit to your health:
•Obesity has been shown to cause greater incidences of arthritis, osteoporosis, heart disease, cancer and other ailments. Exercise greatly reduces the affects of such diseases.
•Regular exercise walking lowers the risk of death from cancer and cardiovascular disease and therefore prolongs life.
•Taking a brisk half-hour walk just six times a month cuts the risk of death by 44%.
•Walking burns calories, tones muscles and reduces stress, improving both physical and mental health.
Walking365.com is a comprehensive online resource for walkers of all ability. It features one of the web's best collections of information, services and tools for the walking community. Site users can learn about the different styles of walking, how to select the best gear for their needs, how to adapt their walking routines as seasons change, how to avoid injuries, and more. Other features include a walking journal and online calculators to estimate calories burned by pace and distance, as well as how much water a walker will need. Walkers can also submit their walking success stories for publication on the site.
