Richmond, Va. (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean the window for a solid fitness routine has closed, Experient Health warns on its web site in the latest post in its Living Well Blog series.
“When the air turns crisp and the days grow short...go for a walk,” Experient Health wrote. “There seems to be no end to the benefits of walking.”
Several studies over the past few years, according to Experient Health, found that walking can help you lose weight, relieve back pain and mental fatigue, boost your creativity, improve digestion and even out blood sugar levels.
Also, consider looking for an indoor class.
“As the year begins to wind down, many indoor recreational classes are just starting up,” Experient Health wrote. “Take advantage of gym and studio calendars to start a new fitness program or learn a new active skill.”
Have leaves in your yard? Don’t discount the exercise value in raking them up. Even yard work counts as exercise.
According to Experient Health, it is a great activity for targeting upper body strength while incorporating some cardio and can burn more than 200 calories an hour.
Experient Health’s Living Well Blog series covers topics ranging from healthy recipes, conservation, vaccination seasons, exercise tips, healthcare news and more.
