Let's Walk Hinckley and Bosworth

About Us

Walking for Health - what is a health walk?

The national ‘Walking for Health’ programme offers health walks designed to encourage people to take regular short walks in their local communities, to benefit their health.

Health walks are offered at lengths of 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 90 minutes  and are usually on surfaced paths with no stiles to negotiate.

So why not join in and start walking your way to health?

 

Benefits of walking

Walking is a great way of meeting new people whilst also exploring your local area and can contribute towards achieving your recommended 30 minutes of moderate activity, on 5 days a week, helping to:

• Reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes

• Keep your muscles and bones healthy

• Lower your blood pressure

• Reduce feelings of stress and increase your sense of wellbeing
