Mythbuster #3– Walking is not real exercise

Truth: Walking is a great form of exercise that reduces the risk of obesity, dementia, cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure.  If Canadians followed the recommendations for physical activity from CSEP (Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology), we could avoid one-third of all pre-mature heart disease deaths, one-quarter of all premature stroke deaths and one-fifth of all premature diabetes deaths.  If walking is too easy, check out the great park trails in Burnaby and New Westminster have many steep hills to test you.

Children who walk to school are more physically active, and the higher level of physical activity help support healthy weights, prevent chronic illnesses and support healthy brain development.

More safety tips are available at the walking page on the City of New Westminster website: www.newwestcity.ca/walking
