Abstract:

Call it power walking, fitness walking, or just plain walking. Indoors or out, walking is one of the healthiest and most rewarding forms of exercise available to all sorts of people, young and old. In fact, walking burns about the same number of calories per mile as running (and it's a lot easier on your knees). Walking is one of the most adaptable workout activities around -- you can walk for an hour straight to make your walking program effective and to achieve your goals, or you can accumulate this hour over the course of a day.
