Walk to a happier healthier you in 2017.

Walking is a fantastic low impact exercise with many benefits. Here’s our top 6 reasons to don your walking boots and get walking this year…

  1. Walking makes you happy

    Exercising really does help boost your mood as feel-good endorphins are released whilst you exercise which helps to reduce stress and anxiety levels. It’s also you time, a chance to switch off from technology and let your mind wonder and relax.

  2. Walking helps you get fit

    Getting fit isn’t all about what the scales say, being fit and healthy is a state of mind in terms of confidence as much as it is being and feeling fit. Walking for 30 minutes a day at an average pace of 2mph you can burn approximately 90 calories (this can be more depending on your weight), upping your speed to 3mph you can burn well over 120 calories (again this is dependent on your weight). Try and work a short walk into your daily routine, get out of the office on your lunch for a brisk walk – it all adds up and the pounds will soon drop off.

  3. Walking gives you energy

    The more you exercise the more energy you have, meaning the more you can get done and achieve in a day – yay! A short brisk walk is one of the best natural energisers around as it boosts your circulation and increases the oxygen supply to your blood cells helping you to feel more awake and alive.

  4. Walking can help you discover new places

    The UK has picturesque national parks and countryside’s in abundance, many of which are right under our nose. (TrekFest takes place in two of the most majestic parks, The Brecon Beacons and The Peak District!) So make the most of the great outdoors during your walking and discover new places.

  5. Walking boosts vitamin D

    Health officials are now recommending that we take a daily vitamin D supplement as many UK residents are vitamin D deficient. By getting outdoors and walking more you’ll be increasing your vitamin D intake to aid healthy bones and your immune system.

  6. Walking starts the conversation

    Acquiring a walking buddy is a great way to keep up the walking as you can support and motivate each other, but not only this it’s also a great opportunity to catch up with a friend or family member without distractions. You’ll also find that whilst out and about walking other walkers say hello to one another.

Inspiring campaigns such as Country Walking’s ‘Walk 1000 miles challenge in a year’ are fantastic as they are motivating more and more people to get off the sofa and get outdoors, and taking part in TrekFest will definitely help you on your way to clocking up those 1000 miles! (approx. 25km = 15.5 miles/ 50km = 31 miles) So join us for an epic trekking weekend and take on the TrekFest challenge. Request a brochure to find out more about TrekFest 2017, or you canregister here.

See you on the start line folks…
