If your looking for a social way of getting healthy - What better that a brisk walk while making new friends.
The Hitchin & Letchworth Health Walks is part of a countywide programme of free, volunteer - led walks, which aims to help people get outdoors, get more active and reap the benefits. The walks are all sociable and you don't need any special equipment to join in, just comfortable shoes. To register to walk either sign up online there website or just turn up a few minutes early for your first walk.
Walking is an ideal way to take the recommended 30 minutes of 'moderate intensity' exercise five times a week that is advised by the government and health professionals. Plus you get to see your local area in a completely different way. Instead of driving past at 30, 40, 60 miles an hour - take time to enjoy the local environment.
